Complex & Illiquid Security Valuations

The increased focus on independence along with ongoing changes to regulatory standards are requiring a wide range of alternative investment managers such as private equity funds, hedge funds, ’40 act funds, business development companies and small business investment companies to seek objective valuation advice. Independent valuations or positive assurance of internally prepared valuations provides comfort to investors, fund administrators and auditors regarding the fund’s valuation assessment.
