The equity premium in The Netherlands: an analysis of 21 stock exchange securities based on the Campbell model


  • H.J. de Wolff


The equity premium is analysed for 21 indiviual firms who are listed at the Dutch stock market. The analysis is based on Campbell's model which explains the equity premium as a linear combination of the covariances between the returns and the residuals of state variables. The residuals are obtained by estimating a first order VAR. This method also takes into account the importance of human capital. The resulting equation has a multifactor form in line with arbitrage pricing theory. The degree of risk aversion is the important parameter in this equation. Estimation by means of the generalized method of moments gives plausible results for the degree of risk aversion.
