We have a component related to expected loss. We also have a component related to the risk premium built into the discount rate. Higher spreads do not necessarily mean higher expected returns. In our example, the total spread was 2.30% The risk premium is: 7.0% - 6.0% = 1.00% The expected loss component is: 2.30% - 1.00% = 1.30% Spread :9 Expected loss 6- Risk Premium Risk Premium and Expected Return The total risk premium is the market price of risk times the systematic risk of the band. We started out with the CAPM to figure out what the risk premium should be. According to theCAPM, we just need to use the correct market portfolio to estimate beta.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
