Free Business Valuation Resources

May 5, 2015

The Internet provides a wealth of information for business valuation analysts to explore—and many of them are free. A particularly useful guide can be found in a recent NACVA QuickRead. This guide helps business valuation analysts learn to build their own Industry Risk Premium (IRP). All you’ll need is knowledge of Excel, a basic understanding of API, and some research skills. From the article:

“By the end of this brief article you will take the first steps to being able to calculate your own industry risk premium free of charge just by pressing a button. I realize that’s a very big claim, so to verify it I tried it out on a valuation friend that I know has no programming skills whatsoever, despite being an awesome valuator. In fact, since I won’t be mentioning this person’s name here I think it is fair to say that even his/her Excel skills do not rank in the top quartile amongst finance professionals.”

Take a look at the guide here.
