proposed strategic expected return

Hi all, in EXAMPLE 5 of the REAL ESTATE session (Adding Real Estate to the Strategic Asset Allocation); Solution 2 stated:

Solution to 2:

L3V5R30-113 The proposed strategic asset allocation’s expected return of 4.9% falls well short of the (1.05)(1.02)(1.0020) – 1.0 = 7.31% return objective based on the description of the problem.

Could some one help me understand how to arrive at this 7.31%, what formula to use?


The best just got better. Schweser's upgraded content and redesigned study platform are exactly what you need to pass the Level III exam. Save 10% when you preorder a Premium Package for a limited time.

Spending rate, inflation, management fee, respectively.

Reread the example, then go back and reread Reading 15, section 3.

You have to be able to pull the pertinent facts out of a vignette quickly.

Simplify the complicated side; don't complify the simplicated side.
