**Question 790** mean and median returns, return distribution, arithmetic and geometric averages, continuously compounding rate, log-normal distribution, VaR, confidence interval

A risk manager has identified that their hedge fund’s continuously compounded portfolio returns are normally distributed with a mean of **10**% pa and a standard deviation of **30**% pa. The hedge fund’s portfolio is currently valued at $**100** million. Assume that there is no estimation error in these figures and that the normal cumulative density function at 1.644853627 is 95%.

**Question 791** mean and median returns, return distribution, arithmetic and geometric averages, continuously compounding rate, log-normal distribution, VaR, confidence interval

A risk manager has identified that their pension fund’s continuously compounded portfolio returns are normally distributed with a mean of **5**% pa and a standard deviation of **20**% pa. The fund’s portfolio is currently valued at $**1** million. Assume that there is no estimation error in the above figures. To simplify your calculations, all answers below use **2.33** as an approximation for the normal inverse cumulative density function at **99**%. All answers are rounded to the nearest dollar.
