Option Pricing Model: Allocation of Value

As you may have noticed over the course of the past few months, Ipreo’s Private Capital Markets team is full of subject-matter experts who are willing and able to expound upon a wide variety of topics affecting the individuals and firms dealing in the private capital space.

Recently, Ipreo PCM has contributed compelling pieces about DLOM (part onepart two), Volatility (part onepart twopart three), and Kevin Black, Ipreo PCM’s Managing Director, sat down with the Ipreo Blog to discuss the challenges facing private capital markets.

The series kicks off with a report on the allocation of value.
