Event Synopsis 

As part of our 30th Anniversary celebration, CFA Singapore is proud to host Professor Aswath Damodaran for his first Asian talk on his latest book - Narratives and Numbers.

Hear him expound how can a company that has never turned a profit have a multibillion dollar valuation. Why do some start-ups attract large investments while others do not? Aswath Damodaran, a finance professor and an experienced investor, argues that the power of story drives corporate value, adding substance to numbers and persuading even cautious investors to take risks. In business, there are the storytellers who spin compelling narratives and the number-crunchers who construct meaningful models and accounts. Both are essential to success, but only by combining the two, Damodaran argues, can a business deliver and sustain value.
