5 Price of a Portfolio The distinction between value and price applies to portfolios of securities as well. However, under the assumptions of no arbitrage and infinite liquidity,3 the arbitrage price of a portfolio of securities is simply the sum of each security’s price multiplied by its respective quantity. Here ‘arbitrage price’ means that trading the portfolio at a different price would lead to an arbitrage opportunity, as illustrated in the example below: Example Consider a portfolio P made of 2 units of security A priced at €100 and 1 unit of security B priced at €50, with the following cash flows: Cash flows (€) Security Quantity A B Portfolio P 2 1 1 t = 1 year Unit price (€) 100 50 2 × 100 + 50 = 250 10 30 2 × 10 + 30 = 50 t = 2 years 110 30 2 × 110 + 30 = 250 The arbitrage price of P is €250, as proved below: • Suppose that P had a market price X > 250.
In this case investors could carry out an arbitrage strategy by short-selling P at price X and buying 2 units of A and 1 unit of B for €250. Such a strategy would result in a profit of X – 250 > 0 today without any future cost: Transaction Sell P Buy 2 A Buy B Total t=0 t=1 t=2 +X −200 −50 X − 250 > 0 −50 +20 +30 0 −250 +220 +30 0 • Conversely, if we suppose that the market price of P is X < 250, investors could also make an arbitrage by buying P and short-selling 2 units of A and 1 unit of B. Thus, in the absence of arbitrage opportunities, the market price of P must be €250, which is the weighted sum of the prices of securities A and B.
