The International Cost of Capital Module

The global cost of capital information and data previously published in the Valuation Handbook – International Guide to Cost of Capital has now been integrated into the Duff & Phelps Cost of Capital Navigator.

What’s in It

The new International Cost of Capital Module provides country-level risk premia (CRPs), relative volatility (RV) factors, equity risk premia (ERPs), and international industry betas which can be used to estimate country-level cost of capital globally for over 180 countries, from the perspective of investors in any one of up to 56 countries (going back to March 2014, quarterly). The new interactive module guides subscribers in accurately quantifying country risks, while explaining and documenting the decision process on the subscriber’s unique cross border valuation scenario.

The International Cost of Capital Module includes a “Resources” section that provides complete (and downloadable) documentation of all methodology, definitions, examples, and calculations.
