Portfolio expected return and risk


[PortRisk,PortReturn] = portstats(ExpReturn,ExpCovariance)
[PortRisk,PortReturn] = portstats(___,Wts)



[PortRisk,PortReturn] = portstats(ExpReturn,ExpCovariance) computes the expected rate of return and risk for a portfolio of assets.


[PortRisk,PortReturn] = portstats(___,Wts) specifies options using one or more optional arguments in addition to the input arguments in the previous syntax.

This example shows how to calculate the expected rate of return and risk for a portfolio of assets.

ExpReturn = [0.1 0.2 0.15]; 

ExpCovariance = [0.0100   -0.0061    0.0042 
                -0.0061    0.0400   -0.0252 
                 0.0042   -0.0252    0.0225 ];
PortWts=[0.4 0.2 0.4; 0.2 0.4 0.2];

[PortRisk, PortReturn] = portstats(ExpReturn, ExpCovariance,... 
PortRisk = 2×1


PortReturn = 2×1


Input Arguments

collapse all

Expected (mean) return of each asset, specified as a 1-by-NASSETS vector.

Data Types: double

Asset return covariances, specified as an NASSETS-by-NASSETS matrix.

Data Types: double

(Optional) Weights allocated to each asset, specified as an NPORTS-by-NASSETS matrix. Each row represents a different weighting combination of the assets in the portfolio. If Wts is not entered, weights of 1/NASSETS are assigned to each security.

Data Types: double

Output Arguments

collapse all

Standard deviation of each portfolio, returned as an NPORTS-by-1 vector.

Expected return of each portfolio, returned an NPORTS-by-1 vector.
