Risk-Adjusted Discount Rate

Incorporates the riskiness of the project's cash flows.  The cost of capital to the firm reflects the average risk of the firm's existing projects.  Thus, new projects that are riskier than existing projects should have a higher risk-adjusted discount rate.  Conversely, projects with less risk should have a lower risk-adjusted discount rate.
