Question description

IMPORTANT NOTE: The professor stated that the previous assignment you completed did not address the questions in its full context. The thread discussion questions are an opportunity to go outside the box to demonstrate your analytical, integrative, problem- solving and critical thinking skills using the knowledge acquired in your readings. As a result, it is very important to pay close attention to the questions and be able to conduct your discussions in the context of your question. (I guess you deviated and started discussing something that had nothing to do with the question). – Please keep this in mind when you complete this week’s assignments for me.

ANSWER THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS. Each question should be answered in at least 250 words. Quality of content and use of course and outside-of-course resources to support your position or analysis. The answers should not be in the form of essay, just straight to the point- Work must be original and cite your sources.

Please be sure to answer the question completely but specifically in well-written complete sentences. 

1.  Explain the concept of risk-free assets.

2.  When adding a risky asset to a portfolio of many risky assets, which property of the asset is more important, its standard deviation or its covariance with the other assets? Explain.
