English term or phrase: arbitrage pricing theory
Definition from The Economist:
The arbitrage pricing theory says that the price of a financial asset reflects a few key risk factors, such as the expected rate of interest, and how the price of the asset changes relative to the price of a portfolio of assets. If the price of an asset happens to diverge from what the theory says it should be, arbitrage by investors should bring it back into line.

Example sentence(s):
  • The Arbitrage Pricing Theory provides more flexibility than the CAPM; however, the former is more complex. The inputs that make the arbitrage pricing model complicated are the asset’s price sensitivity to factor n (βn) and the risk premium to factor n (RPn). Corporate Finance Institute
  • Over the years, arbitrage pricing theory has grown in popularity for its relatively simpler assumptions. However, arbitrage pricing theory is a lot more difficult to apply in practice because it requires a lot of data and complex statistical analysis. Investopedia
  • The test's results show that, within the scope of the methodology and data employed, the Arbitrage Pricing Theory (APT) does hold in the very emerging stock market of Thailand, while the CAPM (Capital Asset Pricing Model) fails to do so. IDEAS

θεωρία αποτίμησης με εξισορροπητική αγοραπωλησία (αρμπιτράζ)

Definition from ΑΝΑΛΥΣΗ ΕΠΕΝΔΥΣΕΩΝ & Δ:
Η θεωρία αποτίμησης με εξισορροπητική αγοραπωλησία (Arbitrage Pricing Theory APT) αναφέρει ότι ένας επενδυτής απαιτεί η αναμενόμενη απόδοση ενός περιουσιακού στοιχείου με κίνδυνο να είναι ίση με την απόδοση ενός στοιχείου χωρίς κίνδυνο πλέον μιας ανταμοιβής για το συστηματικό κίνδυνο που αναλαμβάνει με την αγορά του συγκεκριμένου περιουσιακού στοιχείου. Η ανταμοιβή αυτή είναι μεγαλύτερη όσο μεγαλύτερος είναι ο συστηματικός κίνδυνος που έχει το περιουσιακό στοιχείο.

Example sentence(s):
  • Η θεωρία αποτίμησης με εξισορροπητική αγοραπωλησία (Arbitrage Pricing Theory, APT, Ross-1976-). Είναι ένα υπόδειγμα που βασίζεται στον νόμο της μίας τιμής. Ο νόμος αυτός ορίζει ότι δύο αγαθά που είναι ταυτόσημα δεν μπορούν να πωληθούν σε διαφορετικές τιμές. - Πτυχιακή εργασία
