The market portfolio will be on the efficient frontier. Moreover, it will be the optimal risky portfolio, the tangency point of the capital allocation line (CAL) to the efficient frontier. As a result, the capital market line (CML), the line from the risk-free rate through the market portfolio, M, is also the best attainable capital allocation. Markowitz Overview. Solves the mean-variance optimization problem using the Critical Line Algorithm developed by Harry Markowitz.

In this book, Sharpe changes that by setting out his state-of-the-art. The process of portfolio selection that assumes that every rational investor, at a given level of risk, will accept only the largest expected specifically, mean-variance analysis attempts to account for risk and expected return mathematically to help the investor find a portfolio with the maximum return for the minimum about of risk.
