Real Options Super Lattice Solver (SLS) is a both a stand-alone software and spreadsheet accessible for analysing and calculating real options and incorporating them into custom spreadsheet models. The newly designed customised option modules allow you to create your own à la carte models, where all the mathematical equations and functions are visible, thus demystifying the approach and results, making them easier to understand and explain. Some of the real options, financial options, and employee stock options solved include:
Advanced analytical tools such as the SLS and Risk Simulator might be easy to use but may get the analyst in trouble if used inappropriately. Sufficient theoretical understanding coupled with pragmatic application experience is vital; therefore, training is critical. The Real Options for Executives training is a one-day course focused on high-level real options topics. Topics covered include what real options are, how to identify them, why the analysis is important, actual business cases (who have used them and how they are used), and modeling examples. Real Options for Analysts training is for the analysts who want to begin applying real options in their work, but lack the hands-on experience with real options analytics and modeling. This two-day course covers how to set up real options models, apply real options, and solve real options problems using simulation, closed-form mathematics, and binomial lattices. It focuses on detailed case studies and practice valuation models using the SLS software. Also available are Risk Analysis courses on using Monte Carlo simulation, time-series forecasting, stochastic optimisation, and risk analysis using the Risk Simulator software, as well as real options courses with an emphasis on customised on-site trainings (real options trainings customised to your firm’s exact needs based on your business cases). Consulting services are also available, including the framing of real options, risk analytics, model building, decision analysis, and software customisation.
