BF Forecasts has developed an in-house system which combines macro economic environment, as well as macro economic predictions with the actual new car market development throughout Europe.
The Residual Value Model analyzes:
- macro economic variables
- segment assumptions
- historical analysis of car segments and performances
- vehicle lifecycle adjustment
- brand-model assumptions
- subjective factors (as a result of test drives, tests, and crash tests) and projected future trends.
This residual value model is used to create custom residuals for our clients’ specific purposes.
