The covariance (or correlation) of returns is a measure of how the return of two assets vary together. Typically, investors use historical covariances of asset returns as an estimate of future covariances. But why is a covariance of asset returns needed? As will be explained in Chapter 16, the covariance is important because the variance of a portfolio’s return depends on it and the key to diversification is the covariance of asset returns. Approaches to Portfolio Construction Constructing an efficient portfolio based on the expected return for a portfolio (which depends on the expected return of all the asset returns in the portfolio) and the variance of the portfolio’s return (which depends on the variance of the return of all of the assets in the portfolio and the covariance of returns between all pairs of assets in the portfolio) are referred to as “mean-variance” portfolio management.
