Download executive summary

Valuation is both an art and a science—and private equity general partners who fudge the math could be history. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is looking hard at valuations, as are limited partners, and general partners who are tainted with any implication of fraud or misdirection might soon be looking for new careers. This is why valuation policies must be robust and transparent. Important valuation strategies to consider:

  • Understand calibration; it is increasingly important in valuation methodologies
  • Focus on fundamentals
  • Beware of conflicts of interests in early-stage valuations

Learn more about valuation trends as leading professionals share their insights in a three-part video series produced by Privcap in partnership with RSM.
