Systematic Risk

Systematic risk is any risk which affects the value of a huge number of assets; therefore, each asset will have a various degree of sensitivity to the underlying risk. In financial markets, if investors maintain large, well-diversified portfolios, then asset prices will be affected only by this kind of risk. Higher systematic risk will increase an investor's expected returns. Therefore, systematic risk cannot be diversified away.
