 French term or phrase: un beta Ce taux correspond au taux sans risque de 6 % (i.e. rendement de l'OAT 10 ans) majoré d'une prime de risque calculée à partir d'un beta retenu à 1,2, soit un niveau moyen de risque légèrement supérieur au marché. This rate corresponds to the 6% risk-free return on a 10-year Treasury Bond plus a risk premium calculated on the basis of beta=1.2 (slightly higher than the average market risk). Can anyone confirm? Pleeeeease.... before my head explodes!
