#### Formula:

Sharpe Ratio = (Expected portfolio return - Risk free rate) / Portfolio standard deviation
### Example:

Calculate the Sharpe ratio of an investment in which its expected portfolio return would be 10%, risk-free state is 5% and portfolio standard deviation be 20 %.

#### Solution:

Sharpe Ratio = (10 - 5) / 20

= 0.25
