Although we leave the detailed discussion of risk contribution until the next chapter, we provide a few remarks regarding the relative importance of the two sources of risk. • We notice the specific risk of a portfolio can be diversified away with increasing number of stocks. For simplicity, suppose all stock-specific risks are the same for all stocks; an equally weighted portfolio would have the specific variance of θ02 N . The corresponding specific volatility is θ0 N . 5% with 400 stocks. The systematic risk, on the other hand, does not depend explicitly on the number of stocks; it is solely a function of portfolio beta and market risk.

W ′⋅ β = 0 . We shall derive beta-neutral optimal portfolios in this section. A mean–variance optimization with beta-neutral constraint under CAPM is surprisingly simple. As the optimal portfolio will be beta neutral, its risk will consist entirely of specific risk. 34) as 44 < Quantitative Equity Portfolio Management 1 Maximize w ′⋅ f − l w ′Sw 2 . 46) subject to: w ′⋅ β = 0 We find the solution by using the Lagrangian multiplier method: w* = 1 – f ′ S–β S f − lβ , with l = . 47) As S is a diagonal matrix, we can write the weights explicitly as in wi* = 1 fi − l βi , i = 1,L , N ; with l = l θi2 N ∑ i =1 fi βi θi2 N ∑ i =1 βi2 .
