Market uncertainty, inflation, rising interest rates and pressure from governing bodies for additional regulation in the alternative investment sector such as real estate are some important elements which we believe will put an increasing emphasis on the requirement to have a strong and reliable fair valuation process for alternative assets. Going forward, general partners can expect investors, auditors and regulators to scrutinise their valuation estimation more closely.

PwC'Academy is pleased to offer this course designed to help participants navigate through the challenges associated with the RE valuation oversight. As a prerequisite, participants should have participated to the module "Alternative assets valuation techniques: real estate".
