Grouping Individual Assets into Portfolios The riskiness of a portfolio that is made of different risky assets is a function of three different factors: the riskiness of the individual assets that make up the portfolio the relative weights of the assets in the portfolio the degree of comovement of returns of the assets making up the portfolio The standard deviation of a two-asset portfolio may be measured using the Markowitz model: B A B A B A B B A A p w w w w σ ρ , 2 2 2 2 2 + + =
