Zero Beta Portfolio
What it is:
A zero-beta portfolio is a portfolio built with zero systematic risk.
How it works (Example):
Why it Matters:
The absence of systematic risk in a zero-beta portfolio effectively means that its return is the same as the risk-free rate. For this reason, the return on a zero-beta portfolio is low and, without exposure to market volatility, does not allow it to benefit from potential upswings in the value of the overall market.
