The classical formula of certainty equivalent is reconsidered. Based on a modified proof of the original formula several alternative methods are derived with different orders of magnitude of their errors. This new method is then compared with the classical formula in a computer study showing the advantage of the new approach. Practical applications are also outlined to illustrate the methodology.
