”We are honoured that IVSC has chosen Singapore as its first base outside Europe and the launchpad for its activities in Asia. Establishing international valuation standards provides an important guide for valuation professionals worldwide. It ensures consistency and credibility in valuations, which also enables comparison across different companies. Having clear and comparable valuation standards will support the functioning of capital markets.Ms Indranee RajahMinister in the Prime Minister's Office, and Second Minister for Finance and National Development
