Session 4 DCF Discounting: Risk, Cash Flow, and Discount Rate
Event flyer available here.

Program Description
In this session, counsel and quantum experts will discuss critical aspects of the discount rate estimation when calculating damages using the Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) approach. The panel will provide the foundations and intuition around concepts of risk, as well as the theoretical frameworks to estimate the discount rate and its components. During the discussion, the panel will provide practical examples as well as an overview of awards and court decisions in which tribunals have accepted the DCF method and ruled on different components of the discount rate, including issues relating to country risk. Come ready with questions for this dynamic roundtable.
