*Answer:*

Let the required return of new investment be
**x**

Let the beta of new investment be **B**

Weightage of old investment = 20/25 =0.8

Weightage of new investment = 5/25 =0.2

Target Return = Return of old investment * weightage of old+Return of new investment * weightage of new investment

Return of old investment = 4.5 + 1.4(5) =11.5%

Target Return = 11.5 * 0.8 + **x*0.2**

12= 9.2 + 0.2x

**x** = 2.8/0.2

x = 14

=> 14= 4.5 + **b**(5)

**b=
1.9**
