Question

In addition to the information in exercise 29 on the S&P 500 and core bonds, J.P. Morgan Asset Management reported that the expected return for real estate investment trusts

(REITs) was 13.07% with a standard deviation of 23.17% (J.P. Morgan asset Management, guide to the Markets, 1st quarter, 2012). The correlation between the S&P 500 and

REITs is .74 and the correlation between core bonds and REITs is −.04. You are considering portfolio investments that are composed of an S&P 500 index fund and REITs as well

as portfolio investments composed of a core bonds fund and REITs.

a. Using the information provided here and in exercise 29, determine the covariance

between the S&P 500 and REITs and between core bonds and REITs.

b. Construct a portfolio that is 50% invested in an S&P 500 fund and 50% invested in

REITs. In percentage terms, what are the expected return and standard deviation for

such a portfolio?
