CPD Hours Level
Seminar 3 IntroductionInformation


Discounted cash flows are used by most chartered surveyors whether involved in real estate, development projects or 'whole life' assessment of buildings.

This course will consider various issues including: When considering two projects, which is better - a high NPV or a high IRR? What is an appropriate discount rate?

It explains the theory behind using DCF methods, the advantages and shortfalls of the method and how the method can be used by the relevant surveying doctrines to assist with decision making.

Delegates will be shown how to prepare a basic DCF before going on to consider more complex examples and are recommended to bring laptops or tablets running a spreadsheet program with them to the seminar so that they can participate ‘hands-on’ with setting up their own discounted cash flows.
