Portfolio Return and Risk inputs: r i = projected return on asset i. σ i 2 = projected variance of asset i. σ i = projected standard deviation (risk) of asset i. σ ij = projected covariance of asset i and asset j. ρ ij = ρ ji = projected correlation between asset i and j. ρ ij < 1 for all i, j. w i = weight of asset i, where w i = 1. • the investor must choose the w's n portfolio return = R p = w i r i . i=1 n n portfolio variance = σ p 2 = w i w j σ ij (covariance form) i=1 j=1 i=j n
