Valuation Considerations Amid the COVID-19 Crisis

The World’s economic activities have become severely affected since February due to the outbreak of COVID-19. Governments have imposed travel bans, quarantine measures and various business operating restrictions to limit the spread of the virus. This has resulted in unprecedented elevated market volatilities. Stock market indices fluctuations of +/-10% daily are not uncommon.

However, quantifying such risk is challenging as the situation is still developing, and there are no clear indications as to when the pandemic will subside.

With these changes, the traditional touch points (i.e. face-to-face interactions), which had the greatest influence over customer experience in the past, have shifted. Now, in the digital age, the way in which you satisfy your customer has also had to evolve.
