Webcast , Countries

This has been a challenging year for all. The medium- and long-term economic impact of the pandemic remains to be seen. Volatile public markets have, to some extent, muted the potential impact on the fair value of private investments in the short-term. With a resurgence of the spread of the COVID-19 on one hand and news of potential effective vaccines on the other hand, there remains risk and uncertainty that will impact year-end valuations.

As a follow-up to our earlier webinars, we will discuss key concerns and suggestions for estimating fair value at December 31, 2020. Our experts will answer questions and discuss practical steps fund managers and investors in non-traded or infrequently traded equity, debt and structured product investments can take as they exercise their fiduciary duty to report independent and credible fair value information to investors and stakeholders.
