  • The capital market line (CML) depicts portfolios that have the best risk-reward ratio. It's a theoretical notion that encompasses all portfolios that combine the risk-free rate of return and a market portfolio of hazardous assets in the most optimal way.
  • All investors will take a position on the capital market line, in equilibrium, by borrowing or lending at the risk-free rate, because this optimises return for a given degree of risk, according to the capital asset pricing model (CAPM).
  • The capital market line (CML) depicts portfolios that have the best risk-reward ratio.
