Palisade Europe Moves to New Home

2005 has been a year of growth and progress for Palisade. First was the opening of Palisade Asia-Pacific in Sydney. Next was the new Corporate Headquarters in Ithaca, NY. Now Palisade Europe has relocated to a new facility in West London.

New Training Center
Palisade Europe’s new office is in an historic building in West London just a few miles from Heathrow Airport, with central London only 20 minutes away by train. The office is much larger and includes a well-equipped training facility for Palisade seminars.

“The introduction of @RISK in German, French, and Spanish has created a surge in demand for software and training,” says Craig Ferri, Managing Director for Palisade Europe. He adds “The new office will mean we can serve our existing customers better, and continue to grow and serve Palisade’s future customers.”

New Address
The existing freephone numbers, web and e-mail addresses remain the same. The new mailing address is:

Palisade Europe
31 The Green
West Drayton

Palisade Europe’s new phone number is: +44 1895 425050.

@RISK Scores High Marks At Illinois State

Finance students at Illinois State University’s College of Business rely on Palisade’s @RISK for top marks. Dr. Domingo Joaquin teaches Corporate Finance to undergraduate seniors at the university as well as managers from Archer Daniels Midland, Caterpillar, and other area companies. Both groups of students use @RISK to learn advanced financial analysis techniques using Monte Carlo simulation.

Realistic Forecasts
Dr. Joaquin is an advocate of Monte Carlo simulation and @RISK. “Since the future is unknown,” he says, “it would be implausible to use point estimates to represent future values. Range estimates are an improvement, but @RISK is even better because it is able to reflect the important fact that some values within the plausible range may be more likely than others.”

The Secret to Success
Despite their differences, both undergraduates and managers ask similar questions, such as: “How do know I have the right distribution?” and “What happens if somebody else gets a different answer?” Dr. Joaquin responds to these concerns by explaining that variation in results is normal. “What is important is to come up with credible distributions and credible conclusions. Arriving at this requires a mixture of objective analyses, subjective projections based on experience, and informed judgment from the experts.”
