2018 will inevitably also have its fair share of fund valuation tests, with the introduction of new audit and fair valuation standards, the prospect of updated regulatory guidance on fund valuation, plus the usual set of unanticipated dilemmas along the way.

In response to this, Voltaire Advisors created an annual service package to assist investment fund boards, directors, officers and investment advisers in complying with their valuation obligations.
Our VIVA™ service is a comprehensive and coherent annual package of events, publications and research designed to keep fund valuation professionals fully apprised of issues and challenges in their field. This includes:
Our unique expertize lies at the intersection of regulatory compliance, operational challenges and the deployment of third party solutions in fund valuation. We look at these issues from a practical, rather than a purely legal, angle. With an innovative contributory and participatory model of events and webinars supporting our written analysis, there is no better way for professionals to stay on top of this mission critical topic.Download VIVA Presentation
