  • An investment advisor at RMC Financial Services wants to develop a model that can be used to allocate investment funds among four alternatives: stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and cash. For the coming investment period, the company developed estimates of the annual rate of return and the associated risk for each alternative. Risk is measured between 0 and 1, with higher risk value denoting more volatility and thus more uncertainty. The estimated rate of return for stocks is 10%, for bonds 3%, for mutual funds 4%, and cash 1%. The risk index for the stocks, bonds, and mutual funds investment is estimated as 0.8, 0.2, and 0.3, respectively. Because cash is held in money market funds, the annual return is lower, but it carries essentially no risk (i.e., risk index is zero for cash investment). The objective is to determine the portion of funds allocated to each investment alternatives in order to maximize the total annual return for the portfolio subject to the risk level the client is…
