On May 5th 2016, Voltaire Advisors hosted a one-day Workshop in London devoted to Fund Valuation Under AIFMD. This was part of a series of events we run around the world on buy-side valuation issues. There were over 50 delegates from finance, operations and compliance functions at major hedge and private equity funds and those who advise, service and invest in them.
The agenda represented a comprehensive overview of the issues surrounding fund valuation operations, governance and compliance under AIFMD. Expert comment and analysis was provided by industry leaders from KPMG, PwC, Duff & Phelps, Thomson Reuters, Dechert, Northern Trust, Laven Partners, IFI Global, Carne Group, Schulte Roth & Zabel and Simmons & Simmons.
The keynote on the importance of fund valuation standards was given by Olwyn Alexander, Global Alternatives Fund Leader for PwC. Olwyn is a board member of AIMA and was a key participant in the working groups that created the IOSCO Principles for Hedge Fund Valuation that were subsequently transposed into the AIFMD rules and also the AIMA Sound Practices for Hedge Fund Valuation.
