Let (Xn> be a sequence of random variables with E{Xn} ~ 0, and -~n __.. , a 2(Xn)- 0. If U() is concave and bounded below (which implies that the domain of U() is left bounded), then PROPOSITION. E{U[p Proof. + Xn]} __.. U(p). By Fatou's lemma lim inf E{ U[p + Xn]} > U(p), but by concavity hence lim E{U[p + Xn]} = U(p). D. A problem arises when U(-) is unbounded from below.

I~l If we let c; denote the mean of c; and c2, its variance, then (10) can be solved for p1 as As a consequence, the expected returns, will be unaffected by changes in the number of assets, n, for i < n, and need bear no systematic relation to p as n increases. This is a violation of the arbitrage condition, (7). Notice, too, that as long as c1 is bounded above Ac2 , wealth and relative risk aversion, Aw, are unbounded in n. An alternative interpretation of the market situation would be that as 11 increases the number of risky investment opportunities or activities is being increased, but not the number of assets.
