Financial Management and Policy FMP 1 - 3 Smarter answer. ..: the contribution of each security to the variance of the most diversified portfolio it still captures a deviation from expectations it gives a measure related to the market it is relevant for the multivariate Normal distribution Example: E[R i ] = E i = 0.13 ; σ 2 i = σ 2 j = 0.04, ρ ij = 0.3 with two securities, equal holdings: σ 2 p = E[(0.5 (R i -E i ) + 0.5 (R j -E j )) 2 ] = 0.5 2 σ 2 i + 0.5 2 σ 2 j +2 (0.5) (0.5) E[(R i -E i ) (R j -E j )] = 2 x 0.25 σ 2 i + 2 x 0.25 x σ i σ j ρ ij = 0.026 !!

Financial Management and Policy FMP 1 - 4 with N securities, same principle: σ 2 p = 1/N σ 2 i + (1-1/N) ρ ij σ 2 i ρ ij σ 2 i as N →∝ Thus, the portfolio variance can be reduced to 0.3 x 0.04 = 0.12 simply because of diversification ρ ij σ 2 i N 1 σ 2 i
