Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thanks for answering gaurav...I looked at this link by prof. damodaran: http://pages.stern.nyu.edu/~adamodar/New_Home_Page/datafile/ctryprem.html can I subtract the country risk premium from the total risk premium to get the default spread (what does adjusted default spread of 240for india, mean)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that is the default spread that you are looking for i.e.240bps, you can consider this as the additional risk that you take to be in india when investing in a 10Y govt bond.... Now country risk premium would normally be higher since this is for equity and equity is more risker than bonds.... for India and emerging markets this can be taken ~ 1.5 times Default spread = 1.5* 240 = 360 bps.. now total risk = Pure Rf rate + Mature Market Risk Premium *Beta + Country risk Premium*Lambda. Pure Rf Rate is nothing but 10 Year Govt Bond Yield  Default Spread for India = 800pbs  240 bps = 560bps or 5.60% . Total Risk if Beta =1 and Lambda =1 would be 5.6%+4.90% (Risk Premium for US in March) *1+ 2.40%*1 = 12.90%
