Why is valuation important?

Valuation matters. Whatever the reason for conducting a valuation – financial reporting, M&A activity, financing, insurance, taxation, mortgage lending, asset sales or determining the capital adequacy of financial institutions – reliable and trusted valuations are crucial. In turn this helps foster financial stability and sustainable economic growth.
