I pick C, using participle in a modifier

B is wrong for "intention of portfolios"... each portfolio has its own intention, so intention must be plural

D has a problem with gerund... playing a role of a verb but meaning an action

E uses idiom incorrectly

A is wrong because you said so no, 'intention' is singular

1. With the intention of~
2. Intended to~

(C) wins here.

nice. could not figure out why it was not A.

I agree. I actually picked A because I feel that "with the intention" correctly modifies "allocators" rather than "intended", which modifies "portfolio.

From the posts I read, "with the intention to" is incorrect idiom
"intention of" is correct.
