### Foundations of risk management. quiz 1

Q1.an analyst has compiled the following information: sortino ratio 0.82, beta 1.15,expected return 12.2%, standard deviation 16.4%,Benchmark return 11.9%, Risk free rate:4.75%. Calculate the semi standard deviation.

the formula given in the solution is S.R=Avg Portfolio Returns-Risk free rate/SSD
according to this formula ans is 9.09%
but,
the formula for sortino ratio in pristine notes and schweser is given as SR=diff between portfolio returns- Minimum accepted returns(benchmark returns) / SSD
hence,
0.8=12.2-11.9/ssd
therefore SSD=0.30/0.82= 0.367 ~4%
which is the correct method to solve such type of problems?

regards

The solution is incorrect and thanks for making a note of it. The formula to be used is as provided in the Pristine notes.
