The Capital Asset Pricing Model is a model used to determine the appropriate rate-of-return of an asset in relation to the risk of holding the asset.  Fundamentally, the higher the risk of the investment, the higher the return investors should expect.   

Note that the “Zero Risk” investment has a return of the current US Treasury Bill Rate.  This assumes that there is no “sovereign risk.”  You will not be at any risk loaning money to the US Government by buying and holding US Treasury Bills.


Venture Capitalists and Private Equity Groups are likely to assume your business is riskier than you think it is and demand a higher return.  To get the best deal from investors, you need to show how the risks of the investment can be minimized.  We can help.
