Robert Merton is an American economist who won the 1997 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences. Merton, along with Fisher Black and Myron Scholes, developed a method of determining the value of options, referred to as the Black-Scholes model.
Merton also developed an intertemporal capital asset pricing model (CAPM) based on William Sharpe’s capital asset pricing model. CAPM is a way of calculating anticipated investment returns based on the level of risk.
