w = γΣ−1 (μ − rf ⋅ ι )
w 0 = 1 − w ′ι says that the weights of the risky assets of any minimum variance portfolio are
proportional to the vector Σ−1(μ − rf ι) , with a proportionality constant γ RISK AND PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT WITH ECONOMETRICS, VER. 10/23/2012. © P. KOLM. 22 • This risky portfolio is called the tangency portfolio
• Fama demonstrated that under the assumptions of that all investors are M V optimizers, (1) the tangency portfolio must consist of all assets available
to investors, and (2) each asset must be held in proportion to its market
value relative to the total market value of all assets. In other words, under
these assumptions he showed that the tangency and market portfolios are
the same. We will drive this resulted in the lecture about CAPM Let us determine the weights of the tendency portfolio, w Tang
It must hold that w Tang′ι = 1 from which it follows that w Tang = 1
