Portfolio Valuations

Portfolio Valuations

Valuation of Alternative Investments

Given the difficulty of valuing illiquid assets and the potential for conflict of interest, hedge funds, private equity firms, and other investment managers and financial institutions are receiving greater attention from regulators, investors, auditors, politicians, and other industry participants, with the trend toward a well defined and consistently applied valuation policy that complies with the relevant reporting standards, greater transparency and independence. As the securities held by investors are becoming increasingly complex and continue to rise in number and value, the need for independent third-party valuation services has become essential to enhancing the credibility and transparency of investor reporting and provide benchmarks and support for fund raising and management fees.
