2. ### GARP 2020 Books - Question 5.10

Agreed. In my excitement to solve the problem quickly I didn’t realize that I should have looked at minimizing the function w1^2*0.04+(1-w1)^2*0.16-2*w1*(1-w1)*0.08 Differentiating by w1 and setting to 0 gives 0.08*w1+0.32*(1-w1)*(-1)-0.16*(1-2*w1) = 0 i.e., (0.08+0.32+0.32)*w1 = 0.48 So, w1 =...
3. ### GARP 2020 Books - Question 5.10

If you remove the restriction of the weighting then the portfolio volatility ranges between 10% and 40%. The volatility is lowest when rho =-1 and w1*(1-w1) is maximized. Using derivatives you can show the maximium occurs when w1 = 0.5. So the lowest volatility is 10% and it occurs when...

Portfolio volatility = SQRT (w1^2*sigma1^2 + w2^2*sigma2^2+ 2*rho*w1*w2*sigma1*sigma2) w1 =w2 = 0.5 sigma1 = 0.2 sigma2 = 0.4 rho can be anywhere between -1 and +1. So, calculate the portfolio volatility when rho = -1 and again when rho = +1. This will give you the two limits for the portfolio...
