KOLM. 10 So similar to our calculation above, ei ¢Sw M = siM = L (mi - rf ) (w )¢ Sw M M 2 = sM = L (mM - rf ) And, therefore we conclude that for the entire market it must hold that mi - rf = siM 2 M s (m M - rf ) for any asset i. This model is called the capital asset pricing model (CAPM) RISK AND PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT WITH ECONOMETRICS, VER. 11/10/2012. © P. KOLM. 11 CAPM is valid for a market that satisfy the following assumptions The investor-specific result just derived used the following assumptions: 1.
