Capital Asset Pricing Model - CAPM
A model describing the relationship between risk and expected return that is used in the pricing of risky securities. CAPM says that the expected return of a security or a portfolio equals the rate on a risk-free security plus a risk premium. If this expected return does not meet or beat the required return then the investment should not be undertaken.
