Complex Asset Solutions
The investment community continues to solicit transparent valuation processes from financial intermediaries, seeking best-practice market, credit and capital risk management tools and wanting to enhance and augment their understanding of counterparty valuations, and that of their own assets.
Ongoing changes to standards are requiring many of our clients to look for independent valuation and risk management experts who keep abreast of the ever-changing regulatory landscape and have the ability to assist with quantitative modelling for the financial valuation and risk reporting required for non-traded, illiquid positions.
Furthermore, following the 2008 financial crisis that stressed the financial system considerably, regulators have required more stringent and transparent fair valuation processes. Regulatory reporting standards attributable to financial valuations, disclosures and risk reporting processes continue to evolve as do what is deemed to be best practice risk management e.g. AIFMD, IFRS13, CRDIV, CRR, SFAS 157, IAS 39, Solvency II, Basel etc.
