Stalla Mock Exam Question #1

I found it somewhat troubling that funding the children’s education is a primary goal, yet it is not addressed in the required return calc. I deducted the entire projected expense of $186,000 from assets under the assumption she could just buy TIPS with that amount. Did anyone else run into similar difficulty with the calculation? I wrote an email to Stalla, but it will be a couple of days before they get back to me.
