Analysing Intangible Assets
”Intangible assets are increasingly seen to be driving enterprise value creation across sectors and industries. Challenges and deficiencies in the public reporting frameworks underpinning these intangibles are well-rehearsed. However, at the boardroom level, these assets are evaluated either in the form of a valuation or by analysing the output of the expensing. This webinar will explore the approach companies take to understand and evaluate intangibles and how they analyse the return on the cash outflows towards intangibles.

Valuation of Digital Assets
”Digital assets including non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and currency tokens have proliferated in recent years. At the same time, new technologies, exchanges and digital ledgers are making these assets more accessible to investors and other entities. But how do we approach these from a valuation perspective? Our expert panel will discuss this growing asset class and consider the implications for valuers and valuations.

Valuation, Inflation & Cost of Capital
”Inflation has recently reached multi-decade highs in several countries and regions. Inflationary pressures are not limited to emerging markets, and many developed economies are struggling to keep inflation under control.
In this context, how is the current inflation environment impacting valuations and cost of capital assumptions? Do we need to reconsider long-term growth assumptions in the terminal year of discounted cash flow (DCF)-based valuations? What lessons can we draw from previous business cycles, and how might things be different this time around considering Russia’s war on Ukraine? What other adjustments need to be made to the valuation, and how relevant are these adjustments in hyperinflationary economies?

The Evolution of ESG in Valuation
”Environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues have catapulted up the corporate agenda in recent years, driven in part by the Covid-19 pandemic and company considerations around sustainability, diversity, human capital, corporate purpose and governance. Today, ESG is a key area of focus for a range of stakeholders, particularly in the boardroom. In the background, a catalogue of best practices, disclosure requirements and ESG ratings are under development, all of which seek to improve standardisation around the reporting of ESG. A critical element in the continued evolution of the ESG agenda is the ability to accurately, consistently and quantitatively measure the value of its components. The IVSC is leading efforts to reflect these needs within the International Valuation Standards (IVS). In a recent survey, the IVSC explored the extent to which ESG has become integrated in the valuation process for valuers, businesses as users of valuations, and for investors. This webinar looks over the finding of that survey and considers the future role of valuation in unlocking the potential of ESG strategies.
