Valuation Decisions provides quantitative support for major decisions which impact business value. We integrate considerations from strategy, economics and finance by using advanced analysis. We evaluate projects and businesses, and analyse portfolio-related issues, such as risk assessment and optimisation. We help to identify and quantify key drivers of value creation, and reflect the impacts of risks and uncertainties.
We have an inherent belief in finding the best possible approach for a client’s circumstances. We use analysis to create insight, which supports the taking of action with confidence. We are committed to challenge existing thinking, and believe strongly in using up-to-date and innovate approaches and techniques. As the same time, we recognise the need for practicality and cost effectiveness. Whether in our consulting work or our training programs, we aim to explain complex concepts in simple, focused, and intuitive ways, and to “make everything as simple as possible, but no simpler” (Einstein).
The core business consulting service lines are:
- Business Valuation and Strategic Valuation and Advisory help clients to understand the value and value-creation potential in their business.
- Portfolio Valuation and Predictive Portfolio Analytics uses advanced modelling to assist in the optimal construction, valuation, and risk assessment of portfolios of assets or businesses.
- Project Evaluation supports the evaluation of major projects or initiative, general using uncertainty modelling and risk assessment techniques to do so.
- Legal Decision Support practice provides quantitative analysis to legal professionals in areas such as risk assessment/decision-making in litigation or arbitration processes, the valuation of clauses in complex contracts (guarantees or liabilities).
In addition, we provide financial modelling advisory (Model Design, Planning and Build), and run a limited set of training courses (e.g. “Advanced Financial Modelling using Excel and VBA”, “Financial, Economic, Risk and Valuation Modelling for Oil, Gas, Energy and Resources”, and “Risk Modelling and Simulation using @RISK”) which can be customised to clients’ needs.
We also have several partnerships around the world, which can be drawn on to complement our resources where necessary to meet a client’s objectives.
Valuation Decisions helps senior executives to solve their most complex problems in the areas of decision support, business strategy, value-creation, risk assessment, and optimisation. It was created by Dr. Michael Rees, who combines practical experience from top firms with an exceptional analytic record, and is among the world’s leading authors and instructors in the field of financial and risk modelling. His special interest is in cases where issues in strategy, business economics, and valuation are best addressed using practical advanced quantitative approaches.
Michael has a Doctorate in Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Algorithms, and a B.A. with First Class Honours in Mathematics, both from Oxford University in the UK. He has an MBA with Distinction from INSEAD in France. He also studied for the Certificate of Quantitative Finance, graduating top of the class for course work, and receiving the Wilmott Award for the highest final exam mark.
