The 2008 global financial crisis demonstrated beyond doubt that financial regulation can no longer be the sole preserve of individual nations. Valuation is no exception and the need for improved standards for valuation has been recognized by the G20. The International Valuation Standards are aimed to provide high level principles for the conduct of valuations of all types that are capable of application across different jurisdictions and to all major asset classes. In 2011, a completely new IVS Framework and eleven other standards were published following an extensive three year project.
This webinar will provide an overview of the International Valuation Standards Council, its objectives and on-going work program. The program will introduce the significant requirements of IVS with a focus on real estate, as well as illustrate its application in challenging markets.
