Alternative Asset Advisory
Heightened regulatory concerns and vigilance, together with increased investor scrutiny, have led to increased demand for independent expert advice. Duff & Phelps’ Alternative Asset Advisory segment provides supportable, transparent valuations of illiquid, difficult-to-value investments and complex securities to issuers, investors and regulators. Companies look to Duff & Phelps as both an advisor and sounding board to provide them with independent and objective advice that enables them to make the most informed decisions.
Duff & Phelps also provides merger and acquisition, financial, tax, information technology and human resource due diligence to private equity and strategic investors. Our professionals help clients navigate all aspects of the investment cycle by focusing on value drivers and deal-breakers that are critical to investment decisions.
