mattg SML relates risk (measured by beta) to expected return
jpducros systematic risk I would say...not total risk
khalifa92 @ jpducros you're mistaken.

the security market line applies to any security, efficient or not.

total risk and systematic are equal to ONLY for efficient PORTFOLIOS because those portfolios have no diversifiable risk remaining.

don't mix the two things.
