Answer #1

mutual fund manager has a $40 million portfolio with a beta of 1.00.

The risk-free rate is 4.25%,

The market risk premium is 7.00%.

The manager expects to receive an additional $60 million which she plans to invest in additional stocks. expected return to be 13.00%.

Bi = 1

rf = 4.25%

rm = 7%

Using CAPM You are already given the market risk premium as 7%, this is telling you that the return of the market over the risk free rate is 7%, ie the term (Rm-RFR) =7%,

Using CAPM, a portfolio return of 13% requires a total portfolio
beta of:

13=4.25+B(7)

B(7) = 13 - 4.25

B(7) = 8.75

B= 1.25

The Beta of the total portfolio must be 1.25 to give a return of 13%.

To determine the average beta of just the new stocks (as requested):

.4(1)+0.7(B)=1.25

0.7B=0.85

B=1.2142
