Risk factors

Risk factors

A risk factor is a concept in finance theory such as the CAPM, APT and other theories that use pricing kernels. In these models, the rate of return of an asset ("hence the converse its price") is a random variable whose realization in any time period is a linear combination of other random variables plus a disturbance term or white noise.
