The capital market is one of the transfer of funds, from those excess funds to those who need it. There are two main functions of capital markets, first as a means of funding the business for the company to obtain funds from public investors (investors) with the purpose of business development, additional working capital or other, and the second function is as a means for people to invest in financial instruments such as stocks, bonds, mutual funds and the other with a view to profit (return) in the future.
Investment in capital markets world filled with elements of uncertainty or risk, because investors do not know with certainty the results to be obtained from the investment is doing. Investors just estimated how much the expected profit from investments, and how likely the actual future results will deviate from the expected results. Tandelilin (2001) suggested that the risk is the possibility of real return (actual return) that is different from the expected return (expected return).
Risk in investing can be influenced by economic factors, political, market, customer, internal company and others. These factors will impact on the risk of change (increased or decreased risk) and return that will alter investor confidence and response, as well as the effect on stock price changes and will ultimately affect the market beta and the company’s stock return variance. Tandelilin (2001) states that there are two types of investment risk in the systematic risk (Systematic risk) and unsystematic risk (unsystematic risk).
