Abstract

The poor empirical record of the CAPM paved the way towards the development of multi-factor asset pricing models. The three-factor model of Fama and French (1993) is regarded as a ground-breaking multi-factor asset pricing model. This paper examines the performance of the three-factor model of Fama and French (1993) in the Indian stock market for the period 2000-2012 using BSE-500 stocks as sample. The results suggest the presence of significant size and value premiums in the Indian stock market during the sample period. The three-factor model performs better than the CAPM, as the GRS test is unable to reject it.
