Systemic Risk

Risk common to a particular sector or country. Often refers to a risk resulting from a particular "system" that is in place, such as the regulator framework for monitoring of financial_institutions.

Systemic Risk

A risk that is carried by an entire class of assets and/or liabilities. Systemic risk may apply to a certain country or industry, or to the entire global economy. It is impossible to reduce systemic risk for the global economy (complete global shutdown is always theoretically possible), but one may mitigate other forms of systemic risk by buying different kinds of securities and/or by buying in different industries. For example, oil companies have the systemic risk that they will drill up all the oil in the world; an investor may mitigate this risk by investing in both oil companies and companies having nothing to do with oil. Systemic risk is also called systematic risk or undiversifiable risk.

3) One result of the Markowitz-Miller-Sharpe contributions was the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM), which measures the required return to assets and securities by a risk-free rate plus a risk premium calculated by the product of the market price of risk times a measure of the non-diversifiable risk of the returns to the individual asset or security.
Cooper says of CCAPMs, the models used to determine the theoretical appropriate required rate of return based off of non-diversifiable risk, "They leave a lot to be desired.
