Market turbulence, credit crisis, and pressure from governing bodies for additional regulation in the alternative investment sector 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.

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Describe accurately accounting valuation rules
  • Understand precisely the valuation guidelines
  • Apply recognised methodologies
  • Get clues for effective oversight controls


  • Valuation Technics
  • Oversight
  • Case studies
