 Calculate the missing values for the following four efficient portfolios. The expected return on the market is 7 percent, with a standard deviation of 3 percent, and the risk-free rate is 2 percent. Portfolio Weight in Risk-free Asset Expected Portfolio Return Portfolio Standard Deviation A 15% 6.25% B 30% 5.50% C 45% 4.75% D 60% 4.00% E 75% 3.25%

Standard Deviation on Risky Assets = 3%
Standard Deviation of Risk-free Asset = 0%

Portfolio Standard Deviation = Weight of Risky Assets * Standard Deviation on Risky Assets
Portfolio Standard Deviation = (1 - Weight of Risk-free Asset) * Standard Deviation on Risky Assets

Portfolio A:

Portfolio Standard Deviation = (1 - 0.15) * 7%
Portfolio Standard Deviation = 5.95%

Portfolio B:

Portfolio Standard Deviation = (1 - 0.30) * 7%
Portfolio Standard Deviation = 4.90%

Portfolio C:

Portfolio Standard Deviation = (1 - 0.45) * 7%
Portfolio Standard Deviation = 3.85%

Portfolio D:

Portfolio Standard Deviation = (1 - 0.60) * 7%
Portfolio Standard Deviation = 2.80%

Portfolio E:

Portfolio Standard Deviation = (1 - 0.75) * 7%
Portfolio Standard Deviation = 1.75%
