The Week 4 Case Study Assignment is the third part of a series of analytical tasks, spanning several weeks. Your task involves an analysis of general economic conditions or systematic risk, i.e., the risk that affects all industries and companies, in the U.S. macroeconomy. Your goal is to determine in percentage terms an optimal allocation of $1,000,000 among the following three asset classes: U.S. equities, U.S. Treasury bonds, and cash. In Week 4, submit your analysis of the decision to invest your assets in cash. Keep in mind that the purpose of your analysis is to determine how much money to allocate to each class.
The goal is to maximize your expected return over the next 12 months.
Write a 1 to 2-page paper providing your analysis of the asset classes’ prospects and your justification of your allocation of monies among them.
