Discount Rate Calculation using the Built-Up Method

In company valuation, one method that can be used to select an appropriate discount rate for the business is to use the built-up method. Based on your analysis and understanding of the company’s economics and risk profile, you pick and add up the appropriate risk premium components to arrive at a final figure for your discount rate.
