This first session will introduce the IPEV Guidelines, a framework adopted by the private equity and venture capital industry to value their investments.
The underlying principle, namely that investments are reported at fair value, is also cornerstone of the regulatory framework of the Luxembourg Private Equity fund vehicles the SICAR and the SIF, as well as the basis of the AIFMD valuation and reporting guidelines.
In this first of a series of five valuation related sessions planned for 2014/2015, we will introduce the key principles of the IPEV Guidelines and how they should be implemented in practice.
At this event we will examine the key strategic considerations that influenced the design and resourcing of alternative investment fund management company platforms. We will bring into light significant AIF/AIFM platforms and discuss their key characteristics and utility. We will discuss critical factors based on practical experiences, including key oversight challenges for the members of the Boards. Throughout the panel discussion we will also examine how the AIFM will work alongside investment advisers, service providers and other delegates.
Expert panellists from leading sector players will join this event giving their practical insights and points of view and share with us how they successfully navigated their authorization process with local regulators, together with their insights and rational for the design of their specific platform structures and operating challenges going forward. The AIFM data integration tool will be presented as a possible solution to the operational burden faced by an AIFM.
