Beta=[( Expected rate of return- risk free rate)/market risk premium]

it shall be kept in mind that this formula is derived out of the Capital Asset pricing model equation.

Expected rate of return=risk free rate+ [beta x market risk premium]

Properties of Beta are as follows-

A. Beta is the measure of the volatility of the stocks and it is often categorised by calculation of volatility.

B. According to the Capital Asset pricing model, beta is also known as a measure of the systematic risk.
