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 5.5%. The probability distributions of the risky funds are: Expected Return Standard Deviation Stock fund (S) 15 % 32 % Bond fund (B) 9 % 23 % The correlation between the fund returns is .15. 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.)
