The assessment of key person value has long challenged business appraisers. From identification to quantification, the challenge lies not in assigning a value to relationships, management abilities, experience, or inside knowledge, but to the person holding these intangible assets. In this session we critically examine what goes into determining a key person's value and how to adjust the final determination of value accordingly. Attendees will learn not only how to identify these key attributes, but also how to quantify their value, what empirical data suggests about their worth, what valuation standards say about key person discounts, and what the courts have said about each of the steps along the way. This event may be a rebroadcast of a live event and the instructor will be available to answer your questions during the event.
