CFA Practice Question

An analyst has a client with a $1,000,000 portfolio. The client may need to liquidate $100,000 of the portfolio at the end of a particular year. The client does not want to invade the initial capital of $1,000,000. The table below summarizes different allocations.

What is the shortfall level, RL?

A. 10%
B. 8%
C. 9%
Correct Answer: A

The shortfall level, RL, is 10%: 100 000/1000 000 = 10%. For any return less than 10%, the client will need to invade principal.
