Standard Deviation Expected Return (%) A B C 3 Dominant Portfolios ring4 We can safely assume that all rational investors will prefer A or B over C ring4 That is, portfolio C is inefficient and is dominated dominated by A and B ring4 However, the choice between A and B will depend on the investor’s risk preference ring4 A more risk averse investor will prefer portfolio B to A 4 Riskless Lending ring4 Let us now assume that you can invest in portfolio A at 17%, as well as a riskless asset such as Treasury Bills at 4% (risk-free rate) ring4 By investing in Treasury bills, you are effectively lending to the Federal Government

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
