Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) in Emerging Markets: Evidence in BRICS nations and comparisons with other G20

Cláudio Francisco Rezende, Vinícius Silva Pereira, Antonio Sergio Torres Penedo


The objective of this paper is to empirically investigate the applicability of the asset pricing model in a portfolio made up of groups of countries, the G20 for this case. In the meantime, it was intended to compare a complete sample of 14 constituent countries of the group, a subsample of four countries belonging to the BRICS and another of the countries that do not belong. The survey sample consisted of long-term interest rate data from these countries collected in the OECD database and also from the Central Bank of Brazil (Bacen). Based on the results of the regression of Panel data on fixed effects, we found evidence that there is a statistically positive relationship between the market risk premium and the interest rate risk premiums. The regression betas showed that the interest rate risk premium is not sensitive when considering the full sample of the G20 countries but is sensitive in the BRICS sample.
