FINAL ANSWER |
The beta of the Portfolio |
Beta of a portfolio = Weighted average beta of all stocks in the portfolio
Asset | Beta | Amount Invested | Weight |
Asset B | 1.5 | 20000 | 0.2 |
Asset D | 2 | 25000 | 0.25 |
Risk Free Asset | 0 | 25000 | 0.25 |
Market Portfolio | 1 | 30000 | 0.3 |
100000 | 1 |
Beta of Portfolio =( Beta B x Weight of B) + (Beta of D x Weight of D)+( Beta of Risk free asset x Weight of Risk free asset) + ( Beta of market x Weight of market)
= (1.5 x 0.2) +(2 x 0.25) + (0 x 0.25) + (1x0.3)
= 1.1
Beta of Portfolio = 1.1
