Question

A pension fund manager is considering three mutual funds. The first is a stock fund, the second is a long-term government and corporate bond fund, and the third is a T-bill money market fund that yields a sure rate of 4.1%. The probability distributions of the risky funds are:

Expected Return | Standard Deviation | |

Stock fund (S) |
20% | 32% |

Bond fund (B) |
15% | 22% |

The correlation between the fund returns is 0.43.

What is the expected return and standard deviation for the
minimum-variance portfolio of the two risky funds? **(Do not
round intermediate calculations. Round your answers to 2 decimal
places.)**

Expected return | % |

Standard deviation | % |
