Webinar Description

This webinar will provide attendees with an inside view on performing valuations in emerging markets and how it can vary from developed market valuations in a number of key areas. The agenda will cover the fundamental differences from a scoping and engagement management perspective, through to how methodologies must be tailored and applied to deal with country-specific differences. Whilst many aspects of a business valuation remain the same in emerging markets, applying the same methodologies and processes used in developed markets can result in material issues when concluding on the fair value of a subject company and this webinar intends to guide the attendee towards key areas to focus on and how to mitigate some of the fundamental challenges that are faced in emerging markets.

Instructional Methods

Methods include lecture, visual PPT presentation and polling questions. 

Course Audience

Business valuers or those in closely related professions that have an interest in understanding the challenges of performing business valuations in emerging markets for professional or personal purposes.

Learning Level 


The webinar will broadly cover the following areas which are fundamental to performing valuations in an emerging market context: 
1. Scoping an engagement 
2. Availability and quality of management information 
3. Challenging management forecasts 
4. Forming a view on cost of capital 
5. Issues with identifying listed comparable companies & private company transactions 
6. Regulatory considerations and Governmental factors  
7. Other considerations

Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:

  • Recognize the key challenges when performing valuations in emerging markets;
  • Utilize appropriate methodologies and analytical procedures to perform valuations that are appropriate in an emerging market context;
