Valuation professionals work to provide accurate and reliable information on the value of assets. These might be tangible, such as real estate, or intangible, such as financial instruments.
In businesses across the world, valuations form a key part of audited accounts, which provide transparency and comparability in relation to the value of companies. As such, they can have a huge impact on share prices. So, anyone with a pension or an investment, or simply anyone who wishes to see stable financial markets, relies on high quality valuations performed by highly trained professionals.
The IVSC seeks to develop the valuation profession through rigorous standards, and promote credibility and respect in the global valuation profession.
