Risk-free rate

The risk-free interest rate is a theoretical rate of return of an investment with no risk of financial loss. It is the minimum return required on an investment. Proxies for the risk-free rate are typically domestically held short-dated government bonds. As governments are able to print more money to meet debt obligations, there is, theoretically, no risk of default. However, recent developments have contradicted the risk-free perception of government bonds.
