Problem 1
Annual Expected Return = R_{f} + Risk Premium_{A1}*β_{A1 + }Risk Premium_{A2}*β_{A2}
Or 0.19 = 0.06 + Risk Premium_{A1}*1 _{+ }Risk Premium_{A2}*2
Or Risk Premium_{A1}*1 _{+ }Risk Premium_{A2}*2 = 0.13 (i)
Portfolio B:
Annual Expected Return = R_{f} + Risk Premium_{A1}*β_{A1 + }Risk Premium_{A2}*β_{A2}
Or 0.22 = 0.06 + Risk Premium_{A1}*2 _{+ }Risk Premium_{A2}*2
Or Risk Premium_{A1}*2 _{+ }Risk Premium_{A2}*2 = 0.16 (ii)
By equating both the equation, we get:
Risk Premium of F_{1} = 0.03 or 3%
Risk Premium of F_{2} = 0.05 or 5%
Portfolio using Factor 1:
Weight of resulting unit portfolio: 

Weight of Portfolio A 
60% 
Weight of Portfolio B 
0% 
Weight of Riskfree asset 
40% 
= (19%*60%)+(22%*0%)+(6%*40%)
= 13.80%
=(1*60%)+(2*0%)+(0*40%)
= 0.60
Portfolio using Factor 2:
Weight of resulting unit portfolio: 

Weight of Portfolio A 
0% 
Weight of Portfolio B 
70% 
Weight of Riskfree asset 
30% 
= (19%*0%)+(22%*70%)+(6%*30%)
= 17.20%
=(1*0%)+(2*70%)+(0*30%)
= 1.40
Required Return = R_{f} + Risk Premium_{C1}*β_{C1 + }Risk Premium_{C2}*β_{C2}
= 0.06 + (0.03*2) + (0.05*0)
= 0.06 + 0.06 + 0
= 0.12 or 12%
Annual expected return = 16%
Since, actual return is less than annual expected return, hence portfolio is overvalued.
Income = Return on combined portfolio Return on Portfolio C
= 22%  12% = 10%
Weight are given below (in both conditions):
Weight of Portfolio A : 0%
Weight of Portfolio B : 100%
Weight of Portfolio Risk free asset : 0%

Here, 

Rf = 2% 

Portfolio P 

By using CAPM, calculate Rm: 

RR = Rf + (Rm  Rf)*β 

8% = 2% + (Rm  2%)*0.60 

Rm  2% = 6%/0.60 

Rm  2% = 10% 

Rm = 12% 

Standard Deviation of market portfolio: Systematic Risk of market = SD of portfolio P


B) 
Expected Return of Stock A: 

By using CAPM, calculate RR: 

RR = Rf + (Rm  Rf)*β 

RR = 2% + (12%  2%)*1.90 

RR = 2% + 19% 

RR = 21% 

C) 
Market beta of Stock B: 

Beta = (SD of Stock A/ SD Portfolio P)*Correlation between Stock B and Portfolio P 

Beta = (40%/10%)*0.80 

Beta = 3.20 

D) 
Systematic Risk of Stock B = SD of portfolio*β 

Systematic Risk of Stock B = 10%*3.20 

Systematic Risk of Stock B = 32%

She should invest in Fund A. 

B) 
Risk Aversion coefficient = 1.50 

Utility score of investment = Rf  0.5*A*SD^2 

= 0.08  0.5*1.50*(0.20)^{2} 

= 0.08  0.03 

= 0.05 or 5% 

Now, to get the expected return of 5%, the proportion of Fund A in portfolio can be calculated as follows: 

Expected return = (RR of Fund A)*(Weight of Fund A) + (RR of Tbill)*(Weight of Tbill) 

Expected return = (0.08*Wa) + (0.02*Wt) 

Expected return = (0.08*Wa) + (0.02*(1Wa)) 

0.05 = 0.08Wa + 0.02  0.02Wa 

0.05 = 0.06Wa +0.02 

0.03 = 0.06Wa 

Wa = 0.03/0.06 

Wa = 0.50 or 50% 

Weight of this fund in his portfolio = 50%
