IVSC welcomes Colliers International as a financial sponsor

12 February 2014

The International Valuation Standards Council (IVSC) has today announced that Colliers International has joined its growing list of sponsors, becoming the first property consultancy to provide financial support to the organisation since its restructuring.

David Faulkner, Executive Director, Colliers International comments:

“The International Valuation Standards have a vital role to play in ensuring the consistency and transparency of land, building and equipment valuations across the globe. Colliers’ sponsorship of the IVSC shows the company’s commitment to the further development of international standards and guidance, which will continue to increase our service quality and bring benefits to our clients.”

Sir David Tweedie, Chairman of the IVSC Board of Trustees, welcomed the news saying:

“Support by the property sector is vital for the growth and development of a strong and effective IVSC.

The IVSC was established in the early 1980s originally to support real estate markets. It has expanded to issue standards for other classes of asset and liability, although real estate remains an extremely important global asset class. The IVSC will continue to develop high-level global valuation standards applicable to real estate to improve transparency and accountability and thus boost investor confidence in the sector.”
