Primbs/Investment Science 6 The Capital Market Line σ r r f x M r M - + = M f M f r r r r The capital market line : - M f M r r The slope is often called the price of risk .
Primbs/Investment Science 7 Example Given: 05 . 0 = f r 12 . 0 = M r 15 . 0 = M σ You would like to earn 20% on average. What will be the standard deviation of your portfolio. Clearly, you would like your portfolio to lie on the Capital Market Line, hence - + = M f M f r r r r Solve for 3214 . 0 = 15 . 0 ) 05 . 0 12 . 0 ( 05 . 0 20 . 0 - + =
