As part of the IVSC Virtual AGM this year we are inviting you to join a series of live webinars during October. These webinars are free to join and open to anyone, including non-members of the IVSC.

During the month of October we are bringing together panels of leading international experts to discuss the major trends and issues shaping the valuation, business and investment worlds.  From ESG investment, to changing drivers of business value; the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the macroeconomic outlook, to changing real estate use habits and valuation approaches. 

Panelists hold senior leadership roles in global organisations including standard-setting bodies such as the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), European Financial Reporting Advisory Group (EFRAG), Financial Accounting Foundation (FAF), RICS and the IVSC; financial institutions such as Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, CFA Institute and the World Bank Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA); and professional services firms including PwC, BDO and JLL.
