COVID-19 One Year Later – Impact on Cost of Capital and Related Valuation Issues

Thank you for your interest in our recent webinar, COVID-19 One Year Later – Impact on Cost of Capital and Related Valuation Issues, where our experts Carla Nunes and Jim Harrington discussed the impact of COVID-19 on global financial markets and cost of capital assumptions one year after the outbreak.

They shared the latest global real GDP growth projections and how vaccination rates and fiscal and monetary policy support are affecting the speed of economic recovery across countries. They also analyzed the impact of those policies on risk-free rates, highlighted trends in risk indicators that affect the U.S. equity risk premium (ERP) and unveiled a framework to arrive at a Eurozone ERP recommendation.
