Background: Cost-of-Capital in the Finance Literature

  • Dennis Schlegel
Part of the Contributions to Management Science book series (MANAGEMENT SC.)


The literature review in this thesis is distributed over two chapters. The aim of Chap.  2 is to discuss literature from the field of cost-of-capital. This is necessary as a foundation for the subsequent chapter, which is more application-oriented. In Chap.  3, previous empirical results on companies’ cost-of-capital practices are discussed. Research gaps will be identified at the end of that chapter.
