Risk premium is calculated by subtracting the return on risk-free investment from the return on investment. Risk Premium formula helps to get a rough estimate of expected returns on a relatively risky investment as compared to that earned on a risk-free investment.

Risk premium = Ra - Rf Ra - Asset/ Investment return Rf - Risk free return 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. Market risk premium is part of the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) which analysts and investors use to calculate the acceptable rate of return for an investment. Market Risk Premium = Expected Rate of Return â?? Rf Rf - Risk free return Market risk is the risk which arise due to market related conditions like entry of substitute, changes in demand conditions, availability and access to resources etc. For Example, a thermal power project gets affected if the coal mines are unable to supply coal requirements of a thermal power company etc.
