Borders and trade will continue to evolve unabated over the coming years. Regulators around the world are questioning the quality of business valuations.

The International Valuation Standards Council (IVSC), the global standard setter for valuation practice and the valuation profession, has launched International Valuation Standards 2017 (IVS 2017). 

Understanding the impact of international valuation standards is necessary for all BV professionals to ensure that your reports and opinions address all professional standards and meet the expectations of global clients.

The IVS 2017 course offered by the iiBV takes their best thinking, applies it in a comprehensive case-study format that follows the logical steps of an actual valuation engagement, and provides support materials and a collaborative peer environment to round out the full day session.

Participants who complete the 1-day course will be able to:
  • Describe the role of international valuation standards and a code of ethical principles in the context of global harmonization;
  • Apply IVS 2017 and ethical principles in their professional work and reports;
  • Articulate the bridge issues between established requirements and the new international valuation standards;
  • Lead their practice and clients in the evolution of international valuation standards.
Course materials will consist of presentation slides, participant manual, a case study, the IVS 2017 book and a 25 question multiple-choice exam.

Successful participants will receive an iiBV certificate of completion.
