Investors invest in the equities for the purpose of higher return. According to the view ofAmihud (2002), the risk free rate of return provides less amount return compare to that of the equities. Therefore, the investors are inclined to take the additional risks. However, the risk free rate of return is also termed as the riskless bond. The difference between the equity rate of return and the risk free rate of return is also termed as the equity rate of return (ERP). Specifically, the ERP indicates the value that attracts the investors to invest in the equities bearing the additional risks. ERP can be treated as one of the most important tools in the financial model. The financial analysts face problems in calculating the equity risk premiums mainly due to the unavailability of the proper data. In this context,Amihud and Mendelson (2009) has shown that the ERP for USA has largely remained into 6%.
