It's actually "Asset allocators create..."

The problem with B is that you're not sure what which is referring to: mutual funds or portfolios. Same problem with C: what is intended qualifying? Mutual funds or portfolios?

Typically, intention is associated with a person or a process. It's reasonable to assume that, in this case, the asset allocators (= asset manager) have intentions.

Simplify as follows:

Asset allocators create portfolios with the intention to produce good results in ....

Compare with a similar structure:

Asset allocators create portfolios with the motivation to produce good results in ....

A appears to be the best answer.

Yes, but throw in an additional noun:

Asset allocators create portfolios, with the help of analysts, which are intended to perform well.

Who is intended to perform well? Portfolios or analysts?

My choice is option A.
I find nothing wrong with the question stem.

OA is C
A sounds as if it were the "portfolio" which has some intention
C corrects for that and makes sure that it is the "portfolio" which are intended...

Is "with the attention XX" an idiom ? XX = to, for ??


Could the noun intention be related to a fund or is it only appropriate for alive species ?
