Goodwill Impairment Studies
Duff & Phelps has published a comprehensive U.S. Goodwill Impairment Study each year since 2009 in partnership with Financial Executives Research Foundation. In recent years we have expanded this effort to include separate studies covering the Canadian and European markets. Our studies highlight general and industry goodwill impairment trends as well as regulatory developments impacting how goodwill impairment testing is performed.
