In this concluding chapter we propose and discuss directions of future research in the area of investment decision making under uncertainty. Most of these research suggestions are strictly related to the stochastic dominance (SD) paradigm, and some relate to both the SD and the Mean-Variance (M-V) paradigms. Let us briefly discuss these research ideas.
