2022 Pepperdine Private Capital Markets Report

Friday, August 19, 2022 11:20 a.m. - 12:10 p.m. MT

The Pepperdine Private Capital Markets Report offers an alternative to the build-up method for determining cost of capital for a private firm. Foundationally, a firm's cost of capital is based on the opportunity cost faced by the investors. Hence, cost of capital must be equal to the expected returns of the investor (over time and on an aggregate basis). Rather than inferring investor expectations, the annual Pepperdine Private Capital Markets survey simply asks investors what their expected returns are. This provides a valuable cross check against the build-up method for valuation professionals. The session also provides current trends in the private capital markets, based on this year's survey results.

  • Assess the data contained in the Private Capital Markets Report
  • Identify notable findings this year
  • Determine how to use report data for cost of capital purposes
