Can you please help me with this problem?
Fund A and Fund B both have assets of 100 at the beginning of a year. Each fund shows a return of 2% in the first half of the year and a return of 20% in the second half. There is a positive cash flow for Fund A and Fund B of 50 and 10 respectively, occurring exactly half-way through the year in each case. Find money weighted return.
My answer was 12.349% But, official answer is 26.2%.
My CF0 = 100; CF1 = 50; CF2 =(-182.4)
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
