The market risk premium is the additional return an investor will receive (or expects to receive) from holding a risky market portfolio instead of risk-free assets.
The market risk premium is part of the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM), which analysts and investors use to calculate the acceptable rate of return. At the center of the CAPM is the concept of risk (volatility of returns) and reward (rate of returns). Investors always prefer to have the highest possible rate of return combined with the lowest possible volatility of returns.
