CAPM proof Suppose we hold the market portfolio, M , and we wish to invest a small amount α in an asset X , with beta β . Definition Let R M = return on the market portfolio R X = return on asset X σ M = volatility of the market portfolio σ X = volatility of X r = risk free rate P = M + α X (the new portfolio)

Unformatted text preview: Capital Market Line (CML) , thus R P-r P = R M-r M . CAPM Proof Thus R M + R X 1 + -r M ( 1 + ) 1 + = R M-r M CAPM Proof Thus R M + R X 1 + -r M ( 1 + ) 1 + = R M-r M so R M + R X-r- r 1 + = R M-r CAPM Proof Thus R M + R X 1 + -r M ( 1 + ) 1 + = R M-r M so R M + R X-r- r 1 + = R M-r solving for R X gives R X = r + ( R M-r )...
