The value of a project, investment, company, etc. is critical for making good business decisions, yet all too often we rely on kind of “esoteric” methods for valuation. In this talk, Torsten will describe a logical, systematic—and very practical—approach to put a risk-adjusted value to any kind of project, investment, etc. using simple Monte Carlo simulation. He will demonstrate how easy it is to get rid of the guesswork of arbitrary “risk premium” and use the risk information you already have in your model.
This is a must watch session for anyone working in risk management and a great foundation for the whole week. Make sure you sign up!
