The complexity of the fund and investment holding company structures requires a keen technical understanding of the fundamental idiosyncratic factors affecting the value.
Independent valuations of funds and their underlying investments are required for a number of reasons whether it be for funders, regulatory or management purposes. The types of fund valuations in which we specialise include but are not limited to portfolio funds, hedge funds, and private equity and venture capital funds.
In private equity and venture capital funds, the International Private Equity and Venture Capital Valuation (IPEV) guidelines recommend that best practice is to report investments at fair value. By using an independent valuation expert to accurately estimate the fair value of the fund and its underlying investments, private capital companies are better placed to make allocation, funding and strategic decisions.
