Two Asset Portfolio: Risk • The standard deviation isnot alinear combination of the individual asset standard deviations. • Instead, it isthe square root of variance given by: a/ =w 2 a/ +(I-w)2aB2 +2w(I-w)a A ·a B · PAB • The standard deviation of the 500/0150% portfolio is: [ (05)'(6.68%)2 +(05)'(8.67%)2 ]"2 Up ~ + 2'(05)'(05)'(6.68%).(8.67%).(02592) ~612% • The portfolio risk islower than either individual asset's because of diversification. Diversification • Suppose security A has expected return ECR A ) = 16% and standard deviation c A = 30%, • Security Bhas expected return ECRa) = 10% and standard deviation aa = 16%. • Consider the expected return and standard deviation ofa portfolio of securities A and B when ·thecorrelation between them is + I, when the correlation is0, and when the correlation is-1. Case2: Zerocorrelation between securities, i.e., PAR = O. Min Variance

    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.
