Is Beta Still Alive? Conclusive Evidence from the Swiss Stock market

  • Isakov, D.

Abstract

This paper proposes an alternative approach to access the usefulness of betas and applies it to a representative sample of the Swiss stock market. The approach is based on a more pragmatic analysis of the implications of using realised, rather than expected returns and on the fact that the realised market excess return is volatile and often negative.
