About This Program

The underlying assets that make up a business have a finite life, and knowing the rate at which their values decline is a critical skill for determining useful lives under ASC and other appraisal standards. To make this determination, a valuation professional needs knowledge of the underlying value drivers, but they also need a practical understanding of the tools and methods used to assess their values. Join expert Ray Rath for this in-depth session on the principles, methodologies, and professional guidance that go into these measurements. Learn how to measure the attrition and, ultimately, remaining useful lives of all asset types before your next engagement.
