You are required to address the following points in your report:  What are the expected returns, standard deviation and utility the investor expects to derive from these portfolios? What are the weights in the optimal portfolios? Highlight why you think certain industries received such a weight in the portfolios. Please discuss each of the three investment periods separately.  Compare the actual investment performance of the three optimal portfolios to ASX/S&P300 index and an equal-weighted portfolio for each of the three investment periods. Discuss the differences that exist between the three portfolios over the three periods. Provide details as to why you think the differences exist.  Compare each of the three optimal portfolios to portfolios where you have no expectation about which industry will outperform.
