KPMG Valuation Data Source

Derive the cost of capital faster

The research and data preparation for deriving the cost of capital does not have to be a tedious process.

KPMG Valuation Data Source aggregates all key cost of capital parameters - including beta factor, credit spread. In just a few steps, the solution guides the user through the derivation of the individual weighted average cost of capital (WACC) or the cost of equity relevant for the financial sector: the user simply specifies the preferred reporting date, the desired country, the currency and the peer group and selects the desired settings e.g. a one-, two- or five-year betafactor for the calculations. Users can access the data calculated by KPMG at any time or incorporate their own values into the analysis. Since queries are saved automatically once they have been created, the calculation of the current cost of capital only requires the selection of the desired reporting date after the initial entry. The results can be downloaded and forwarded to the auditor together with the documentation.

The KPMG Valuation Data Source provides access to cost of capital parameters from more than 150 countries and peer group-specific data from over 13,500 companies worldwide. The cut-off dates range from 2012 to today. The interactive dashboard is updated monthly and is always available everywhere and at all times.
