# CAPM Model - Calculating Expected & Risk Free Return

A) Find the Expected Rate of Return on the Market Portfolio given that the Expected Rate of Return on Asset "i" is 10%, the Risk-Free Rate is 3%, and the Beta for Asset "i" is 1.5.

B) Find the Risk-Free Rate given that the Expected Rate of Return on Asset "j" is 14%, the Expected Return on the Market Portfolio is 12%, and the Beta for Asset "j" is 1.5.

Also, how do you figure out risk free rate?

#### Solution Preview

Solution 1:

Ke=Krf+Beta*(Km-Krf)

ke is expected rate of return =10%

krf is return on risk free asset = 3%

Km is expected market return = ?

Beta = 1.5

Put these values in equation and get

0.1 = ...
