For over 20 years, our professionals have published books, created studies, provided recommendations and built tools to help businesses and valuation professionals calculate cost of capital.
Quantifying risk is essential in any valuation analysis and no easy task. While the result is only one input in a valuation analysis, getting it wrong can make or break an investment decision or materially impact a valuation conclusion. While corporate finance theory has established some generally accepted approaches for calculating cost of capital, multiple complex models have been developed to establish the required inputs, and numerous books and articles have been published on this topic. It remains one of the most complex corporate finance principles today.
Kroll regularly reviews fluctuations in the global economic and financial market conditions. These reviews warrant a periodic reassessment of the equity risk premium (ERP) and the accompanying risk-free rate and key inputs used to calculate the cost of equity capital in the context of the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) and other models used to develop discount rates.
