For a portfolio of three assets, the formula is: σP = w12 σ12 + w22 σ22 + w32 σ32 + 2w1 w2 σ1 σ2 ρ1,2 + 2w1 w3 σ1 σ3 ρ1,3 + 2w2 w3 σ2 σ3 ρ2,3 (4-1) where ρ1,2 , ρ1,3 , ρ2,3 are the pairwise correlation coefﬁcients. Problem 5 veriﬁes this formula for the portfolio in Table 4-5 and investigates the impact of correlation on the Sharpe ratio. • Generally, for n assets, we have: ⎧ √ σP = V(RP ) ⎪ ⎪ ⎨ ⎪ ⎪ ⎩ V(RP ) = V n wi Ri = i=1 n i=1 wi2 σi2 +2 V(Ri ) n−1 n wi w j σi σ j ρi, j i=1 j=i+1 (4-2) Cov(Ri ,R j ) This formula may look a little daunting at ﬁrst, yet it really is nothing else but the weighted sum of the n individual variances and all n(n – 1) covariance pairs as shown in the matrix in Figure 4-2 below.
