CFA Practice Question

Portfolio A has an expected return of 9.85% and a factor sensitivity of 0.5. Portfolio B has an expected return of 16.7% and a factor sensitivity of 1. The risk-free rate is 3%, and there is one factor. The factor's price of risk is ______.
A. 11.2%
B. 12.6%
C. 13.7%
Explanation: E(RA) = 3 + 0.5 λ = 9.85

E(RB) = 3 + 1 λ = 16.7

Using either equation, we can calculate the price of factor risk as λ = (9.85 - 3)/0.5 = (16.7-3)/1 = 13.7

The risk premium for each unit of factor risk, or price of risk, is 13.7%.
