About This Program

On July 25, in Equity Risk Premiums: Looking Back, Looking Forward, Dr. Aswath Damodaran will argue that "the days of stable equity risk premiums are behind us." After years of economic turmoil, equity risks must be related to events and fundamentals, and checked between markets to ensure their accuracy. This in-depth examination will focus on the connections between country-specific risks, historical equity risks, and related data, and what financial professionals must do to ensure accuracy when determining risk premiums in the new economy.


  • The equity risk premium:
    • Determinants
    • Estimation
    • The ubiquitous historical risk premium
  • Determining the country risk premium
    • Country default spreads
    • An equity volatility based approach
    • A melded approach
  • From country equity risk premiums to corporate equity risk premiums
    • Estimating country risk premium exposure
    • Single versus multiple emerging markets
    • Estimating a lambda for country risk
  • Implied equity premiums
  • Which equity risk premium should you use?
  • The bottom line…

Learning Objectives

  • Learn the relationships between country and equity risks  and measures of volatility, risk, and return
  • Learn which approaches and methods are best suited to determining country and equity risks and the relative strengths and weaknesses of these approaches
  • Learn why the days of static risk premiums are over and why dynamic, forward-looking estimates of risk are now imperative
  • Learn why comparison of risk premiums across markets is now a necessity for checking consistency and pricing
