Despite the ongoing global challenges, over 300 companies took part in the study this year from the DACH region, including 35 companies from Switzerland, highlighting the study’s relevance once again.

The focus of the Cost of Capital study this year is “Global Economy – search for orientation?”. Among others, it examines the effects of the shifting economic environment, including the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on business models, business planning calculations and long-term return expectations (cost of capital) based on industry-specific analyses.

This year's key topics include:

  • Four hypotheses on recent economic developments
  • Alternative approaches to goodwill measurement
  • Valuation methodology shifts during uncertain times?

Download the study and receive more in-depth explanations and analyses on questions around capital costs, forecasting and value orientation. The download will also give you access to our interactive online data analysis that will allow you to pick the parameters relevant to your own company.
