What is the link between risk and valuation?
Place your bets.
In Finance, the risk premium is the extra return for investors who take the risk to buy an asset.
Consider two similar bonds, issued by the same company, one with some preferential rights or clauses, the other one without, consequence - the price will be lower for the bonds with no additionnal rights. Thus, the asset price is defined by the risk taken by investor. Share class of a company are very similar to bonds with preferential rights and clauses.
At Ekwity, we truly believe that the risk taken by employees is far much higher than for professionnals investors. We consider their financial and professionnal investment in the company as a priceless asset. Their knowledge, the absence of preferential rights and fiidelity should conduct to a specific valuation.
