Fair Value reporting has been around globally since 1940. Private capital as an asset class is now in its third decade in India and attracts institutional investors from all geographies, most of whom require fair value reporting. As is evident in recent years, valuations are a critical and core issue for all stakeholders in the fund space as there is a need to demonstrate robust processes and procedures around the subjective task of ascribing fair value to privately held (i.e. unlisted) investments.
This page will provide several guidelines, tools and resources and perspectives that we believe could be leveraged by general partners, their board of directors, valuation professionals, auditors and other stake holders in performing their fiduciary duties.
Investor scrutiny and requirements from auditors and regulators have become more pronounced. Watch this space for updates from time to time.
