London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham

The London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham is a London borough in west London and in southwest London. Traversed by the east-west main roads of the A4 Great West Road and the A40 Westway, many international corporations have offices in the borough; the local council is Fulham London Borough Council. The borough is amongst the four most expensive boroughs for residential properties in the United Kingdom, along with Kensington and Chelsea, the City of Westminster and Camden; the borough is unique in London in having three professional football clubs: Chelsea and Queens Park Rangers. The borough was formed in 1965 by merging the Metropolitan Borough of Hammersmith and the much more ancient Metropolitan Borough of Fulham.. It was known as the "London Borough of Hammersmith" until its name was changed on 1 January 1979 by the borough council; the two had been joined together in the parish of Fulham until 1834 as the hamlet of Hammersmith had no church until much later. They were joined together again under the Fulham District from 1855 to 1886.

Fulham saw vigorous industrialisation and urbanisation from the start of the 19th-century, with the establishment of the world's first energy utility company, at Sands End in 1824, followed by rapid road and rail transport development to the east of the borough. Vacant land by the new railway sidings on the boundary with Kensington and Chelsea London Borough Council led to the development of the internationally recognised Earls Court Exhibition Centre, visited by the reclusive Queen Victoria in 1879 when she attended Bill Cody's Wild West Show at West Brompton. There followed numerous international fairs and exhibitions for a century until the construction of Earls Court II in the borough in the 1980s; this was dismantled after the 2012 Olympics. Meanwhile, at the other end of today's borough, in 1908, the Franco-British Exhibition and Olympic Games were hosted in Hammersmith, at White City, but the site took many decades to be redeveloped. In 1960, the BBC opened the BBC Television Centre, in 2008, Westfield London, a large development with new transport links and a shopping centre completed the redevelopment after one hundred years.

The borough includes the areas: Brook Green Chelsea Harbour College Park East Acton Fulham Hammersmith Old Oak Common Parsons Green Sands End Shepherd's Bush Walham Green West Kensington White Citysee parks and open spaces in Hammersmith and Fulham Since 1964 political control of the council has been held by the following parties: According to the 2001 census Hammersmith and Fulham has a population of 165,242. 60% of the borough's population is White British, 20% white non-British, 5% black Caribbean, 8% black African with various other ethnicities making up the remaining 11 percent. The borough has the second-highest proportion of single adults of any borough in England and Wales, a higher than average proportion for the London area of young adults aged 20–29. Around 50% of households are owner–occupiers, 22% of households were listed as "other" – that is, not single persons living alone or families; these are two or more unrelated adults living together, such as students or cohabiting couples.

The borough comprises a patchwork of affluent as well as some less affluent neighbourhoods. The unemployment rate is well below average at under 5%, although of these, 29% were listed as long-term unemployed. See external links below for more census information from the borough.

Efficient frontier

In modern portfolio theory, the efficient frontier is an investment portfolio which occupies the'efficient' parts of the risk-return spectrum. Formally, it is the set of portfolios which satisfy the condition that no other portfolio exists with a higher expected return but with the same standard deviation of return; the efficient frontier was first formulated by Harry Markowitz in 1952. A combination of assets, i.e. a portfolio, is referred to as "efficient" if it has the best possible expected level of return for its level of risk. Here, every possible combination of risky assets can be plotted in risk–expected return space, the collection of all such possible portfolios defines a region in this space. In the absence of the opportunity to hold a risk-free asset, this region is the opportunity set; the positively sloped top boundary of this region is a portion of a hyperbola and is called the "efficient frontier". If a risk-free asset is available, the opportunity set is larger, its upper boundary, the efficient frontier, is a straight line segment emanating from the vertical axis at the value of the risk-free asset's return and tangent to the risky-assets-only opportunity set.

All portfolios between the risk-free asset and the tangency portfolio are portfolios composed of risk-free assets and the tangency portfolio, while all portfolios on the linear frontier above and to the right of the tangency portfolio are generated by borrowing at the risk-free rate and investing the proceeds into the tangency portfolio.
