The American Society of Appraisers (ASA) announces a new Cost of Capital advanced online education course for valuation professionals beginning November 1-2. Presented by Roger J. Grabowski, ASA, this course is designed for practitioners who may be unaware of the criticisms of and recent developments in the most commonly used methods for estimating cost of capital.

Grabowski will examine the latest issues on data sources, the risk-free rate, the equity risk premium, Beta and other measures of risk, alternative cost of equity capital models, issues with distressed companies, and pass-through entities. This course is an update of the Center for Advanced Valuation Studies’ cost of capital seminar, which Grabowski developed.
