# How to Find Expected Mean, Covariance, Standard Deviation and Correlation Coefficient

Question

Consider the following ex ante (expected) distributions for assets 1 and 2: marginal distributions

 Asset 1 Asset 2 m R1m f(R1m) l R2l f(R2l) 1 12% 0.45 1 4% 0.09 2 6% 0.55 2 8% 0.17 3 10% 0.35 4 14% 0.39

joint distribution (for above outcomes of return)

 m L f(R1m, R2l) 1 1 0.01 1 2 0.03 1 3 0.17 1 4 0.24 2 1 0.08 2 2 0.14 2 3 0.18 2 4 0.15

For question 3, consider the following data for assets 1, 2, and 3 (i = 1, 2, 3):

 Asset i E[Ri] si 1 4% 2% 2 10% 3% 3 15% 5%

Also, S12= 5, S13 = -9, and S23= 3.

Question

Using the above data for assets 1, 2, and 3 and assuming that you have \$1,000,000 to invest, answer the following:

A. If you have \$400,000 invested in asset 1, \$100,000 in asset 2, and the rest in asset 3, what is the expected return on your portfolio (E[RP]) ?

B. Using the portfolio in part A of this question, what is the total risk of your portfolio's return in percentage terms (sP)?

Summary

The question belongs to Statistics and it is about finding expected return from the investment made in the assets. And also the risk of the portfolio has to be calculated.

Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
