Capital asset pricing model

• Abbreviated CAPM. The basic theory that links together risk and return for all assets. The CAPM predicts a relationship between the required return, or cost of common equity capital, and the nondiversifiable risk of the firm as measured by the beta coefficient.

• Abbreviated CAPM. An economic theory that describes the relationship between risk and expected return, and serves as a model for the pricing of risky securities. The CAPM asserts that the only risk that is priced by rational investors is systematic risk, because that risk cannot be eliminated by diversification. The CAPM says that the expected return of a security or a portfolio is equal to the rate on a risk-free security plus a risk premium.

• Is a tool that relates an asset's expected return to the market's expected return. It combines the concepts of efficient capital markets with risk premiums. The idea of capital market efficiency assumes immediate instantaneous -response to perfect or near perfect information. The risk premiums relate an investment to the market's risk-free or riskless rate of return. Typically, this risk-free rate is viewed in terms of principal safety for short term U.S. government obligations. Here, beta relates the volatility of an asset to the market.
