2 Overview • In previous lecture we learned how to combine one   risky asset (or portfolio) and a risk-free asset to get  the CAL. • We also learned why and how different investors  choose different combinations (different weights) • This lecture we will learn how to combine more than  one  risky asset together.
3 Overview • Question: Why is combining risky assets any  different than combining a risky asset and a risk-free  one? E(r) . A σ . B
