CAPM Approach to Investment Analysis Feedback.png


CAPM approach to investment analysis is a technique that employs the CAPM equation to calculate the risk adjusted, after-tax required rate of return in the net present value equation. This approach replaces the use of the traditional weighted average cost of capital. Beta is usually estimated as the average of the betas for firms already operating (exclusively) in the market in which the investment will be made.[1]
