2 You manage an equity fund with an expected risk premium of 13% and a standard deviation of 44%. The rate on Treasury bills is 6.6%. Your client chooses to invest $90,000 of her portfolio in your equity fund and $60,000 in a Tbill money market fund. What is the expected return and standard deviation of return on your client’s portfolio? (Round your answers to 2 decimal places.)

Expected return on equity fund = Expected risk premium + risk free return=13+6.6=19.6%
Weight of equity fund = Investment in equity fund /Total investment=90,000/(90,000+60,000)=0.6
Weight of T bill = 1weight of equity fund=10.6=0.4
Expected return of client portfolio =
Weight of equity fund* Expected return of equity fund+ weight of T bill* Expected return on T bill
=0.6*19.6+0.4*6.6=14.4%
Standard deviation of client portfolio=weight of equity fund * standard deviation of equity fund
=0.6*44=26.4%
