Abstract

This short note discusses the link between the certainty equivalent approach of modern asset pricing theory and the cost of capital approach in DCF-models in a capital market model. Therefore we distinguish two notions of cost of capital: (a) risk-adjusted discount rates for a particular cash flow and (b) risk-adjusted returns of the project. In order to account for the flow of information both types are defined with respect to the valuation date.
