(A) 'intention of' should be the correct idiom
(B) the intention of which is
(C) intended
(D) inappropriate use of 'and'
(E) awkward

Bstween B and C, I take B. It's concise, and to the point.

Did you mean to say C? This ubiquitous "intended" seems to be an ETS favorite, so let`s keep an eye out for it.

I vote for (A).

To be successful is not the intention of mutual funds, but of asset allocators themselves. Thus, (B) is not appropriate.

Moreover, what is "which" referring to? mutual funds or portpolio? It's vague.

I do not find any fault with the original statement, and would choose A.

the correct idiom is "intent to" not "intent of" is also correct. however the problem here is correct participle phrese.

To....forlorn
the portfolio is being modified by " in the form of mutual funds " and also "intended to turn in good results..."

In fact, both of phrase modifier portfolio but it's different form.
in the form of mutual funds ---prepositon phrase, apposition
intended to turn in good results----relative cluase
