Year-end 2021 data, including equity risk premia, CRSP decile size premia, and industry betas/IRPs, are now available in BVR’s Cost of Capital Professionalplatform. The platform is a simple, transparent, and cost-effective service for estimating the cost of capital and is designed to bring more professional judgment and common sense back into the process, which has become too much of a complex “black box” of applied mathematics. It supports the buildup method and CAPM calculations for any valuation date. It also gives you the flexibility to choose the start year for historical return data based on what segment of history you believe best offers a reasonable basis to make estimates of expected future returns. For a personalised demo of the platform, click here for the most current industry risk premia, equity risk premia, size premia, and risk-free rate figures all in one platform. Access data from credible sources including the US Federal Reserve, CRSP, Dr. Aswath Damodaran, and Salvidio & Partners.
