Abstract

The systematic risk is considered as one of the most important factors that influence the investment in financial assets. Usually, it is evaluated in the framework of the Capital Asset Price Model. The systematic risk associated to firm equities is affected by some firm’s characteristics, among them being the particularities of its activity. In the last decade the financial markets from Romania experienced a substantial development interrupted by the recent global crisis that provoked significant changes for the financial risks. In this paper we study, using CAPM betas, the systematic risk for the Romanian companies listed at the Bucharest Stock Exchange. We find significant differences between the financial and the non financial companies’ systematic risks.
