D&P Cost of Capital Navigator is now live

BVWireIssue #186-1
March 7, 2018

The much-anticipated Duff & Phelps Cost of Capital Navigator is now live. The Navigator is an interactive online application that replaces the Duff & Phelps Risk Premium Toolkit and the hardcover version of the Valuation Handbook – U.S. Guide to Cost of Capital.

Year-end data available: Data for year-end 2017 has just been made available—a full month sooner than with the old print version of the handbook. That’s just one of the benefits of this online tool. Quarterly updates will now be provided free of charge, and you’ll also be able to produce supporting documentation without dealing with the long-form tables.

The Navigator has all of the data originally included in the Valuation Handbook – U.S. Guide to Cost of Capital: the U.S. cost of capital data inputs (equity risk premia, size premia, industry risk premia, risk premia over the risk-free rate, risk-free rates) from two essential valuation data sets: the CRSP Deciles Size Study and the Risk Premium Report Study. Later in 2018, the Navigator will be updated to include additional data and information from the other three Valuation Handbooks as add-on modules.
