A set of FAQs for BVR’s Cost of Capital Professional (CCP) has been added to the webpage that explains the new independent service for estimating the cost of equity. The Cost of Capital Professional is designed to move away from a complex “black box” of applied mathematics and bring more flexibility, professional judgment, and common sense back into the process. It supports the build-up method and CAPM calculations for any valuation date and is available on a free-trial basis using CRSP market return data up to Sept. 30, 2018. Later, the platform will be available with a subscription and will contain FY2018 data and beyond. New data will be added in March 2019. To sign up for the free trial, click here.

Free webinar: The author of the platform, Michael Crain (Florida Atlantic University), and advisory board co-chair Ron Seigneur (Seigneur Gustafson LLP CPAs) will conduct a free webinar on November 20 to demo the new platform and discuss the thinking behind it.
