For S & P CNX Nifty Index, the mean is 25.9 with variance and Standard deviation
1585.66 and 39.82 respectively.
TOTAL MEAN VARIANCE STANDARD DEVIATION
CNX BANK Index 356 35.60 2244.27 47.37

For CNX Bank Index, the mean is 35.6, with the variance is 2244.27 and the
standard deviation is 47.37.
From the table above, we calculated the covariance for S&P Nifty Index and CNX
Bank index is 0.1790.

## E(Rp) = (0.6*0.259) + (0.4*0.356)

= 29.78%

Variance portfolio:

Before addition of new asset class, the average portfolio return is 29.78% and the portfolio
standard deviation is 42.31%.
2. After adding a new asset class (gold), the portfolio return average is 27.37% and
portfolio risk is 32.92%. Compare to the portfolio before adding new asset class
(gold), that having average portfolio return of 29.78% and standard deviation of
42.30% which is higher than portfolio after adding a new asset class (gold).

3. Estimate the Sharpe Ratio for the diversified portfolio (gold and equity) versus an
equity portfolio using the result from Question 1 and 2. Comment on the result obtained and
the implication they carry with regard to the significance of diversification.

## Sharpe ratio E(p)

Question 1 (29.78% - 8.11%) / 18.22% 0.2978
= 1.1894
Question 2 (27.37% - 8.11%) / 25.32% 0.2737
= 0.7607

Hedge fund allocation to existing assets class is 60% (S&P CNX Nifty Index) and
40% (CNX Bank Index) in investment portfolio stock which has Sharpe Ratio 1.1894.
Sharpe Ratio greater than 1 is considered acceptable to good by investor. The new
portfolios allocation is 50% (S&P CNX Nifty Index), 30% (CNX Bank Index) and 20%
(Gold) has resulted decreasing in Sharpe Ratio which is 0.7607.
