Solving for the Efficient Frontier of Risky Assets
In a world where there are no risk free assets and just these three risky assets, plot a chart of
the efficient frontier of risky assets both in the case where short sales are permitted and
short sales are not permitted.
Using the same method as described in 1 above, we can determine various set of
portfolios by defining a fixed rate of Expected Return.
In 1 above, we include another constraint wherein we want the portfolio to generate a
fixed rate of return (say J14 = 4.5%), using Solver again we can get another set of portfolio with
different weights of A, B and C with different SD of the portfolio. It needs to be remembered
that this SD arrived at using Solver (4.88%) would still be minimum for
