PART 2 evaluate pricing models

It is necessary to understand the equilibrium models of the Capital Asset Pricing Model and the Arbitrage Pricing Theory. Each model attempts to explain returns as a function of a risk measure(s). The CAPM extends the diversification discussion by modeling the element of risk that all investors cannot remove through diversification (i.e., the systematic risk). This risk is measured as beta, which is one of the most famous measures within the area of investments. The APT makes use of arbitrage arguments to form a model of return as a function of many possible risk factors. Upon successful completion of this assignment, you will have shown your ability to evaluate the Capital Asset Pricing Model and the Arbitrage Pricing Theory as it relates to risk and returns.

For this task, you will write a paper in which you include the following:

  • Describe and illustrate the CAPM.
  • Describe and illustrate the APT.
  • Compare and contrast the effects of CAPM and the APT.
