Abstract

Portfolio selection is a common field in the financial world. Investors are always willing to find an optimal portfolio among several assets. In this paper, this report wants to find out a method that can help investors decide their optimal portfolios quickly through some simple comparison. This report use nine mutual funds in the US as the sample. This report set a certain range for the weight of single funds and built a portfolios enumeration model to enumerate all the possible portfolios which contain three single funds and use the Sharpe ratio to determine a portfolio’s good or bad. The result is that a portfolio with a large Sharpe ratio has certain characteristics: the funds it contains always include a fund with a negative Sharpe ratio, a fund with the largest Sharpe ratio among nine funds and a risk-free asset and their weight floats only within a certain range. This method can facilitate investors’ selection process because they could easily find an optimal portfolio by comparing the Sharpe ratio of each single fund.
