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 5.9%. The probability distributions of the risky funds are:

Expected Return | Standard Deviation | |

Stock fund (S) |
20% | 49% |

Bond fund (B) |
9% | 43% |

The correlation between the fund returns is .0721.

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 | % |
