Research in the field of dynamic financial and portfolio management models is primarily focused on dynamic stochastic programming in order to maximize utility due to the dynamically changing weights of individual portfolio components. We use methods based on the solution of the Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman partial differential equation and its suitable transformations. We propose efficient and stable numerical schemes for solving underlying equations. The results are applied mainly in the field of dynamic optimal management of retirement pension funds.
