Abstract [en]

1.3. Research Questions.

With this in mind, the research questions of this work are:

1. Is the Capital Asset Pricing Model still applicable despite the heavy impact of the financial crisis on the financial systems?

2. What happens to this model when the risk free rate approaches zero?

3. Is there a relationship between the riskiness of an asset and the risk-free interestrate when the latter is approaching the zero level?
