Definition of risk premium
Usually refers to the extra return that the investor requires to compensate for additional risk. The equity risk premium is the extra that shareholders expect for investing in shares rather than a risk-free investment such as government bonds. Over the last 90 years, the risk premium has been between 3% and 9%. Currently, most commentators believe that the risk premium is around 3% or 4%.
