Alternative Investments


The growing prominence of alternative investments presents unique challenges requiring specialized expertise. This requires tailored solutions to satisfy the requirements of managers, investors, and fund auditors/regulators. Compliance and financial reporting obligations drive the need for valuation analyses and narrative reports aligned with International Valuation Standards.
