Program Description

Longstaff and Finnerty Models have been used to model the discount for lack of marketability/liquidity, and have been thesubject of substantial controversy. A substantial part of this confusion arises from a failure to distinguish between the premium for liquidity and the discount for lack of liquidity. This webinar makes the distinction clear and explains how removing the imputed value bias can lead to results that are clean and defensible.

Learning Objectives

After completing this webinar, attendees will be able to:

- Differentiate between the premium for liquidity and the discount for lack of liquidity
- Identify appropriate models to use under different conditions of information asymmetry
- Create defensible discounts for lack of marketability/liquidity
