English term or phrase:RISK DISCOUNTING
For cash flows that are quite volatile or uncertain,
the RISK DISCOUNTING is large, so risky cash flows are
worth little. The sum of these separate cash flow
pieces is then the fair value of the project..."
Generally, in the capital markets sector, "to discount something" means roughly to evaluate the future or present value of an asset, a good or a currency once you add or remove a premium and/or a risk due to an external factor or a cyclical influence which has nothing to do with its spot value (the equivalent of its cash or actual value determined at present by the market)
I.e., At present, 25$ for a barrel of oil does not discount (takes into account) the war risk premium in Iraq.
