This course will explore the theory and application of portfolio theory, covering the topic areas of investment for equity, bond, and derivatives. Furthermore, investment management will also be covered in this course.   There are total 9 questions.  The parts written in blue letters with investment 01, 02, and 03 respectively are parts that should have pictures related to the problem. Please refer to the attached pictures. please read carefully all the problecgxms and double-check with the calculation.

Given Data Average return = (-10% + 25% + 45%)/3 = 20% = 0.20 Var = ∑(Annual Return – Average Return)2 / N

Var = 0.155/3 = 0.051667 ~ 0.052

1.2

SD = √Var = √0.051667 = 0.227

2.1

Given Data Average return of A = (-0.05 + 0.10 + 0.16) / 3 = 0.07

Average return of B = (0.02 – 0.07 + 0.10) / 3 = 0.01666667

Calculation Table: Cov(A,B) = ∑(Return A – Average Return A) (Return B – Average Return B) / N

Cov(A, B) = 0.0045 / 3 = 0.0015

——————————————————–

2.2

Calculation Table Var(A) = ∑(Return A – Average Return A)2 / N

Var(A) = 0.0234 / 3 = 0.0078

SD(A) = √Var(A) = √0.0078 = 0.08832

——————————————————–

2.3

Calculation Table Var(B) = ∑(Return B – Average Return B)2 / N

Var(B) = 0.01446667 / 3 = 0.0048222

SD(B) = √Var(B) = √0.0048222 = 0.0694

——————————————————–

2.4

Corr(A, B) = Cov (A, B) / (SD(A) SD(B))

Corr (A, B) = 0.24458
