Summary of Question 8 question

1. The risk-free rate of return is the theoretical rate of return of an investment with zero risk like Treasury bonds offered by the Federal Reserve bank. The risk-free rate represents the interest an investor would expect from an absolutely risk-free investment over a specified period of time. In theory, the risk-free rate is the minimum return an investor expects for any investment because he will not accept additional risk unless the potential rate of return is greater than the risk-free rate.
2. The risk premium is the minimum amount of money that a person is willing to accept as compensation for taking on a risky or volatile investment.

A risk premium is a sort of hazard pay for your investments. Riskier investments â€“ typically the more volatile ones â€“ have to provide investors with the potential for higher gains than those that are risk-free, in order to convince the investors, the risk is worthwhile.
