Abstract

The main objective of equity investors is the capitalized value of future benefits. In thisregard, most of the time, these investors prefer to build portfolios of financial instruments. Thisrequires the creation and permanent adaptation to the demands of the modern economy of modelsdesigned to ensure a much easier management of these portfolios of financial instruments. CAPMmodel provides a relatively accurate prediction of the relationship that exists between a financialrisk and the expected return (yield). The usefulness of the model lies in the fact that, on the onehand it offers the possibility of comparison of different variants of placement in the financialmarkets and, on the other hand, justifies the estimate on the scientific basis of the expected futurevalue of profits generated by a financial instrument. The core of the CAPM model is represented bythe beta coefficient which measures the sensitivity of the financial instrument in relation to thesystematic risk.
