Standard Deviation Expected Return (%) A B C 3 Dominant Portfolios r We can safely assume that all rational investors will prefer A or B over C r That is, portfolio C is inefficient and is dominated dominatedby A and B r However, the choice between A and B will depend on the investor’s risk preference r A more risk averse investor will prefer portfolio B to A 4 RisklessLending r Let us now assume that you can invest in portfolio A at 17%, as well as a risklessasset such as Treasury Bills at 4% (riskfree rate) r By investing in Treasury bills, you are effectively lending to the Federal Government 5 14 10 17 Adding the RiskFree Asset 4 Standard Deviation Expected Return (%) riskfree asset 22 A B C Now assume that we can invest in a riskfree asset such as Treasury Bills at 4% (risk free rate) 6 Standard Deviation Expected Return (%) RisklessBorrowing and Lending A 22 4 8.8 17 9.2 24.8 35.2 We could invest in a combination of the Risk Free Asset and A The range of portfolios lie on the straight line shown 7 Verify the point on the plot r Invest 40% in portfolio A and 60% in Treasury Bills r Expected return on your overall position = + E() E ) ) ( ( ff p A A r w w r r 8 Verify the point on the plot r Variance of your overall position 2 2 2 2 2 , 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 () 2 ()() p f f A A f A f A f A f A A f A A A A w w w w w w w w w σ σ σ ρ σ σ σ σ σ = + + = + + = σ σ σ σ σ σ = = = = = 2 2 2 0.4x0.22=0.088or8.8% p p A A A A p A A w w w 9 RisklessBorrowing r Borrowing $600 at the risklessrate, you can invest this together with your original wealth of $1,000, a total of $1,600, in portfolio A = + E() () E() p f f A A r wr w r r The standard deviation of your overall position is σ σ = = p A A w 10 Standard Deviation Expected Return (%) RisklessBorrowing and Lending A 22 4 8.8 17 9.2 24.8 35.2 11 14 10 17 4 Standard Deviation Expected Return (%) riskfree asset 22 A B C We could also invest in the risk free asset and B 12 14 10 17 4 Standard Deviation Expected Return (%) riskfree asset 22 A C But we can do marginally better 13 The Capital Market Line Standard Deviation Standard Deviation Expected Return (%) 4% (r f ) The line which runs at a tangent to the efficient frontier (from the riskfree return on the Y axis) is called the Capital Market Line...
