QUESTION 1 HAS FIVE PARTS (A, B, C, D, E) FOR A TOTAL OF 31 MINUTES
Cynthia McCollum, CFA, is a portfolio manager at Western Brookes, an asset advisory
firm. Hart has been asked to construct an investment portfolio for Mona Hart, a senior
manager at a manufacturing enterprise. McCollum collects the following information on
Hart:








Hart is 52 years old and is the divorced mother of two sons, aged 8 and 12
respectively.
Her living expenses are protected against inflation and amount to $350,000 per
annum.
Her annual salary offsets her living expenses on an inflation-adjusted basis
without leaving any funds for saving purposes. Her salary is expected to grow at
the annual inflation rate of 4%. The inflation rate is expected to remain the same
for the indefinite future.
She expects her living expenses to reduce by 20% upon her retirement, which is
ten years from today.
She is taxed at a rate of 35% on all income, dividends and capital gains.
She has recently received $3 million from her deceased father’s estate which she
wishes to employ for investment purposes.

During McCollum’s meeting with Hart, the client makes two statements which the
manager feels are essential to incorporate in the decision making process.
Statement 1: “My past experience with a venture capital fund investment was unpleasant.
Long lock-up periods and high losses meant that my funds were tied up in a
poorly performing asset class for quite some time. I would request
refraining from all types of alternative asset classes.”
Statement 2: “I would not like my investment portfolio to decline by more than 15% in
nominal terms in any given year and will be satisfied with an annual pretax real return of 2.5%.”
A. Formulate the return objective of an investment policy statement for Hart.
Calculate the after-tax nominal return requirement to achieve this objective
assuming that the inheritance is invested in accordance with the stated before-tax
real rate of return. Show your calculations.

QUESTION 3 HAS TWO PARTS (A, B) FOR A TOTAL OF 18 MINUTES
The Walkers reside in Gratina, a country with an emerging market and currency pegged
to the US dollar. The couple is seeking a professional to advise them on how to transfer
their $50 million investment portfolio to their daughter, Cynthia, in a tax-efficient
manner. They have come to Abdul Rasool, CFA, who is a tax advisor, for a solution.
After analyzing the couple’s portfolio, Rasool determines that stocks and bonds
comprising the portfolio earn a pre-tax return of 8% and 6% respectively. The asset
classes are held in the proportion 80 stocks/20 bonds. He also determines that the couple
has an expected life expectancy of 20 years.
Rasool devises two alternative wealth transfer strategies both of which account for the
fact that bequests are taxed at a rate of 50%. Cynthia pays a marginal tax rate of 30%.
Current tax laws permit tax-free transfer of up to $25 million.
The first strategy will involve gifting the portfolio to Cynthia.
A. Determine the after-tax value of the portfolio if the first strategy is executed.
Your answer should discuss whether this strategy should be recommended based
on the change in the value of the investment over the investment horizon. Show
your calculations.
(6 minutes)
The second strategy involves placing bonds in Cynthia’s investment account while
retaining equities in the couple’s investment account. Rasool proceeds with this strategy
by making the necessary allocations. Immediately after doing so, Rasool realizes that
placing equities in Cynthia’s account will be more advantageous from a tax perspective.
He now sets out to determine the adjustments will be required to the investment accounts
to ensure the post-tax weights are kept constant.
B. Determine the magnitude of adjustments which Rasool will need to make to the
investment accounts to ensure that the original allocation is maintained. Show
your calculations.

QUESTION 5 HAS FOUR PARTS (A, B, C, D) FOR A TOTAL OF 22 MINUTES
The Carter Foundation has endowed The Music Fund (MF), a recently established
organization with provide funding to aspiring musicians seeking formal education. The
fund receives grants from donors located across the globe and is headquartered in Sri
Lanka. MF has received $30 million in grants to date. MF’s policy portfolio is being
managed by Wes Moore, an asset manager.
The foundation’s chief investment officer (CIO) has mandated that the fund set aside
20% of its annual grant-making and spending budget in a reserve. MF’s CIO has
estimated this amount at an average of $10 million per annum for decision making
purposes. MF’s management is not permitted to spend this amount until the 12-month
average asset value is known with certainty.
The CIO makes note that the foundation has overspent its budget in the current year. In
response to the overspending situation, the CIO states, “We are fortunate to be allowed to
carry-back and carry-forward our annual spending. Therefore, overspending in excess of
the 5% annual spending rule should be beneficial to MF in the long-run.”
In the current year, MF receives a $5 million grant from Michael Thomas, the CEO of a
music records company. The grant has been awarded in the form of ownership rights to
the record company’s stock. The CEO has expressly instructed the CIO to avoid
diversifying the fund as it will reduce exposure to the stock.
The CIO estimates that annual portfolio management expenses will amount to 1.2%.
Annual inflation is at 3% and is expected to remain at this rate for the indefinite future.
A. Formulate the return and risk objectives of MF’s IPS. Show your calculations
where necessary.

QUESTION 6 HAS FOUR PARTS (A, B, C, D) FOR A TOTAL OF 24 MINUTES
Hanna Abdul, CFA, is an independent economic analyst. For her recent study, Abdul will
be comparing the values of the Canadian dollar (CAD) relative to the U.S. dollar (USD)
observed over the years 2012 to 2014. Upon concluding the assignment, she intends to
value a developed market equity index based on economic fundamentals.
During 2012 and 2013, the CAD appreciated strongly against the USD with its value
rising from $0.75 in 2014 to $0.90 in 2013. However, beginning 2014, the USD rose in
value and began to accelerate resulting in the CAD falling to $0.55. Based on purchasing
power parity, the long-run value of the CAD is expected to fall in the range of $0.50 to
$0.85.
Based on her finding Abdul attempts to explore the reasons underlying the swings in the
value of the CAD. She employs the relative economic strength, capital flows, and savings
investment imbalances approach deriving the following conclusions:
Conclusion 1: “According to the relative economic strength approach, the rise in the
value of the CAD can be attributed to positive domestic economic growth
resulting from falling unemployment levels and increased business
activity. Despite the decline in the value of the CAD in 2014, economic
growth was still found to be higher relative to that observed in the US. “
Conclusion 2: “According to the capital flows approach, the U.S. observed a capital
account surplus in 2012 and 2013.”
Conclusion 3: “According to the savings-investment imbalances, the Canadian economy
was under pressure to increase investment and reduce domestic savings
opening up the current account deficit in 2012 and 2013. In 2014,
companies were required to cut back on borrowing and spending. The
CAD fell back in value as companies were required to balance the current
account.”
A. Determine whether each conclusion is correct or incorrect. Justify your response.

Abdul is cognizant of the fact that the government is limited in its ability to control
exchange rates with market intervention. She aims to discuss this matter in a report
summarizing her observations of the USD/CAD exchange rate.
B. Identify three factors which limit the ability of governments to control exchange
rates with market intervention.
(3 minutes)
Next, Abdul analyzes a developed market equity index comprising 5,000 stocks. The
issuers are large and mature companies operating in a mature economy. The value of the
index on the date of analysis, January 20, 2014, was $35,000. The forecasted 12-month
dividends per share of the index constituents are $150. Due to the mature nature of index
constituents, Abdul projects that inflation-adjusted earnings and dividends will equal to
that of GDP. The relevant economic data to value the index has been summarized in the
exhibit below.
Exhibit:
Economic Data Relevant to Valuing the Index
Long-term inflation-adjusted growth in capital stock
4.1%
Long-term labor force growth
- 0.4%
Total factor productivity (TFP) growth

0.6
C. Estimate the inflation-adjusted discount rate to perpetuity using the CobbDouglas production function and Gordon growth model. Show your calculations.
(4 minutes)
As of the end of 2014, Abdul discovers that the index is trading 25% below the level
observed twelve months earlier. He notes that stock issuers have coincidently maintained
a constant dividend yield in the current and previous two years.
D. Determine which of the following factors – actual dividends paid, required return
on equity, or long-term, real dividend growth – contributes to the price decline.
