    I have the three funds below with their own return and standard deviation. I want to find the optimal/efficient portfolio in Excel. Can you help me with this?

(If you need this info, suppose I have $2M to invest in this portfolio and you wan to maximize return for a targeted risk)

    NU Bond E(r) 12.04% Stdev 15.6%
    NU Equity E(r) 8.55% Stdev 5.76%
    NU Cash E(r) 4.96% Stdev 0.98%.
