According to the
capital asset pricing model, what is the expected return on
Portfolio Z? |

Answer #1

HI,

Here risk free rate rf = 4.8%

market return rm= 11.5%

according to Capital asset pricing model

expected return = rf+beta*(rm-rf)

and beta = correlation *standard deviation of portfolio/ standard deviation of market

and standard deviation of portfolio z = squareroot(variance)

=squareroot(0.3345) = 0.578

standard deviation of market = squareroot(0.0442) = 0.21

so beta = 0.34*0.578/0.21 = 0.935

**Then expected return of portfolio =
4.8+0.935*(11.5-4.8)**

**=11.07%**

**Thanks**

a) Suppose the risk-free rate is 4.4% and the market portfolio
has an expected return of 10.9%. The
market portfolio has variance of 0.0391. Portfolio Z has a
correlation coefficient with the market of 0.31
and a variance of 0.3407. According to the capital asset pricing
model, what is the beta of Portfolio Z?
What is the expected return on Portfolio Z?
b) Suppose Portfolio X has beta of 1 with expected return of 11.5%.

Suppose that the risk-free rate is 6 percent and the
expected return on the market portfolio is 15
percent. An investor with $1.5 million to invest wants to achieve a
25 percent return on a
portfolio combining the risk-free asset and the market portfolio.
Calculate how much this
investor would need to borrow at the risk-free rate in order to
establish this target expected
return. Provide your final answers up to two decimal points.
