MUTUAL FUND RISK
Money Market Funds

       Provide current income

       Maintain constant $1 per share NAV

       95% of assets in highest grade short-
         term debt instruments

       Not insured by government entities

       Inflation Risk: chance that rising
         prices will erode real (after inflation)
         investment returns
             MUTUAL FUND RISK
                Bond Funds

 Bond fund values, like bond prices
   themselves, can be volatile

 Interest Rate Risk: when interest rates
   rise, bond prices fall—existing bonds
   become less valuable.

 Income Risk: chance that income from
   mutual fund investments will fluctuate

 Especially important for retirees
             MUTUAL FUND RISK
                Stock Funds

 Market Risk: change in NAV because prices of stocks (and
  bonds) fluctuate

 Inferior Management Risk: chance that poor timing or
  substandard security selection will result in bad performance

 Sector Risk: chance of loss due to focus on some
  underperforming industry or industry group.

 Style Risk: chance of loss or inferior short-term performance
  when valid investment styles suffer through inevitable periods of
  underperformance.
Investors cannot
eliminate all types of
mutual fund risks
              risks.
         ASSESSING STOCK FUND RISK
            Portfolio Characteristics

 Look to company’s annual report to shareholders, 10-k
   report to SEC, and fund prospectus for free
   information about
      fund assets and holdings
      earnings
      Management          SEC Link to Prospectus Info
      Strategy                 Columbia Fund Info
 Performance is bottom line
    Relative performance
    Benchmarks
Assessing Fund
   Portfolios

   Clarifies fund investment
     philosophy or strategy
   May indicate departures from
     fund goals
   Percentage of fund assets
     invested in top 10 securities—
     ready for correction
   Gives only snapshot—track over
     time to get clear picture
                     ALPHA, BETA & R2
 Under CAPM, Security Market Line (SML) shows relation between expected
   rate of return and systematic risk
 ßP is beta measure of portfolio systematic risk
 Risk premium for typical mutual fund should be ßP times as great as market risk
   premium.
  signifies annual return on portfolio not tied to volatility in overall market
 Better than theoretical performance expectations:
       Selectivity (stock picking ability)
       Market timing (punctual purchase and sale of securities)
 R2 shows association between fund return volatility and overall market volatility.
         ALTERNATE MEASURES OF RISK
              Adjusted Performance

 , , R2 not very useful in depicting risk/reward ratio
   for mutual funds over time

 Reward-to-variability measure (Sharpe ratio) gives risk
   premium earned relative to total risk.

 Reward-to-volatility measure (RVOL or Treynor ratio)
   gives risk premium earned relative to systematic risk.
          ALTERNATE MEASURES OF RISK
               Adjusted Performance

 Sharpe Ratio = ( Rp – Rf ) / s(Rp)

 Treynor Ratio = ( Rp – Rf ) / p


  What is the Sharpe ratio of a portfolio with a
    historical average return of 15% and a standard
    deviation of 16% if the risk free rate is 2.2%?
        Sharpe Ratio = (.15 – 0.022) / 0.16 = 0.8
         ALTERNATE MEASURES OF RISK
              Adjusted Performance

 Sharpe Ratio = ( Rp – Rf ) / s(Rp)

 Treynor Ratio = ( Rp – Rf ) / p

  What is the standard devaition of a portfolio
    with a historical average return of 15% and a
    Sharpe ratio of 1.1 if the risk free rate is 1.5%?
        Sharpe Ratio = 1.1 = (0.15 – 0.015) / s

        therefore s = 12.3%
         ALTERNATE MEASURES OF RISK
              Adjusted Performance

 Sharpe Ratio = ( Rp – Rf ) / s(Rp)

 Treynor Ratio = ( Rp – Rf ) / p

 What is the Treynor ratio of a portfolio with a
   historical average return of 15% and a Beta of
   1.2 if the risk free rate is 2.2%?
       Treynor Ratio = ( 0.15 – 0.022) / 1.2 = 0.11
Bond Fund Investing

         Bonds are part of many
          people’s portfolios.

      regular monthly income     redemption when doing so
                                  would be economically
      appropriate for small
                                  advantageous to the issuer
       investors
      diversification           Prepayment Risk: chance of
