CAPM Assumptions and Characteristics

  • The CAPM is a multi-period model, allowing investors to make different decisions over different time horizons.
  • The CAPM is not defined by random variables that are uniformly distributed.
  • Systemic risk is not prescribed entirely by one factor known as the alpha factor in the CAPM; instead, it is represented by beta.
  • Markowitz mean-variance efficiency criteria play a crucial role in determining the optimum portfolio in the CAPM.
  • Transaction costs are assumed to be zero in the perfect capital market assumed by the CAPM, which implies frictionless markets.
  • All investors in the CAPM are assumed to be risk-averse, not risk-seeking.
