# Portfolio Theory – Part 4 (Math Concepts)

In this video we walk through the equation for Portfolio Theory.

VIDEO SUMMARY

In this video, we are going to continue our conversation about Portfolio Theory. Now I think this video is going to blow your mind. In some of the previous videos we have talked about things like risk and diversification and negative correlation and why that is important. But in this video, what I am going to do is I am going to walk through the math equation for Portfolio Theory and put all the pieces together and show you how this works. So to get started, I am going to throw up the equation. What this is, is it is looking at a two asset portfolio. So you have a portfolio with two different assets. That is asset A and asset B. Based on the percentage each asset takes up, as well as the individual characteristics of those assets, that is going to determine the performance of your overall portfolio. So that is the goal here with this equation. You are trying to gain this understanding of your portfolio’s performance.

The key concept here is that Portfolio Theory separates the concepts of risk from return. Now previously I have always talked about risk and return as related concepts, and they are. Because if you were to go out and buy an individual investment, you would assess the riskiness of that investment and you would build that into the price you would be willing to pay. So if you are looking at an investment with ten percent risk you would want to discount the future cash flow by ten percent and receive that ten percent interest. So this idea of risk and return are very related concepts. But what we see when we put investments together in a portfolio, risk and return start to separate from each other. The reason why this is, is because if assets or investments are negatively correlated, the uncertainty between these investments will cancel each other out. Because when one investment goes down, another investment will go up. And so the overall portfolio risk will be reduced. So we are trying to figure that out here.

I hope you realize the significance of this equation, because what it is telling you, is that you are creating value without having to pay for it. Based on the financial choices you make on putting together your portfolio, you can create value there. If you just went out and bought an individual investment, you would pay the appropriate price based on the risk. But if you combine it into a portfolio in a smart way, you are actually not holding as much risk as you pay for. So I hope you realize the significance of this and how powerful it can be. In the next video, I am going to break down some of the issues that are in Portfolio Theory and some of the things you should be aware of.
