Step 1

a.

Given,

Standard Deviation of Portfolio = 46%

New Standard Deviation of Portfolio = 35%

Calculation of Investment Proportion y: help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseNew Standard Deviation of Portfolio Investment Proportion Standard Deviation of Portfolio 35% 46% = 76.09% fullscreen
Step 2

b.

Investment Proportion = 76.09%

Expected Rate of Return = 20%

T-Bill Proportion = 23.91%

T-Bill Rate = 5%

Calculation of Expected Rate of Return of Client’s Portfolio: help_outlineImage Transcriptionclose(Investment Proportion x Expected Rate of Return) Expected Rate of Return of Clients's Portfolio = | +(T-Bill Proportion x T-Bill Rate) (76.09%x20%)+(23.91%x 5%) 15.218%+1.1955% =16.41% fullscreen
Step 3
