Kroll expert Carla Nunes, CFA, ABV, spoke at the 2023 AICPA & CIMA Forensic & Valuation Services Conference in two separate sessions. During the conference, Carla was interviewed by Nene Glenn Gianfala, CPA, ABV, ASA BV/IA, of Chaffe & Associates, Inc. about current economic conditions that impact valuations and the cost of capital. Carla provided an overview of current conditions and discussed projected economic growth. This was followed by a deep dive into the cost of capital and how individual inputs, including the risk-free rate, equity risk premium, betas and cost of debt, are impacted.
The following are some highlights of the discussion:
Objective valuations for financial reporting, tax and management planning purposes.
M&A advisory, restructuring and insolvency, debt advisory, strategic alternatives, transaction diligence and independent financial opinions.
The Kroll Cost of Capital Navigator is an online platform that guides you through the process of estimating the cost of capital, a key component of any valuation analysis. You can subscribe to any or all four cost of capital modules, each offering three annual subscription levels–Basic, Pro and Enterprise. Additional products offered by Kroll include the annual Stocks, Bonds, Bills and Inflation® (SBBI®) Yearbook which provides historical U.S. capital markets data.
