Valuation Workshop with Professor Aswath Damodaran

Calendar January 18, 2017

Trident Bandra-Kurla Complex,
Mumbai, India

The 2017 Duff & Phelps India Valuation Forum took place on January 18, 2017 at The Trident, BKC in Mumbai, India.

The inaugural event was attended by over 200 guests. Varun Gupta, Duff & Phelps Managing Director and Regional Leader of Southeast Asia and Japan, addressed the audience as he introduced our special guest speaker Professor Aswath Damodaran. Professor Damodaran currently teaches corporate finance and equity instruments and markets at New York University Stern School of Business.

The Professor spoke from his latest publication "Connecting narratives to numbers". He stressed the importance of achieving a balance between telling a story and numbers by citing classic examples of Amazon, Uber, Ferrari and Alibaba. He shared his insights into a few tools that can be used to bridge the gap between "Numbers People" and "Narrative People" to arrive at a good valuation. This session was followed by Q&A in which the Professor addressed queries including how demonetization would impact valuations, especially cost of capital, and how the election of Donald Trump will impact India.
