James Herr, CFA, ASA
Matthew Mezs
valuation methods & approaches
monte carlo, option price modeling, valuation methodology, black scholes option pricing model


Participants will understand the origins of Monte Carlo, as well as learn basic applications for use in the real world. The webinar will cover basic statistics and mathematics required to understand how Monte Carlo simulations are performed, including discussing the central limit theorem and the law of large numbers. The participant will learn how to model stochastic equity/asset processes for use in option pricing and contingent consideration valuations. The participant will learn basic Excel functions for performing Monte Carlo simulations and at the end, will learn how to recreate a Black Scholes call option value using Monte Carlo simulation.
