How Leigh is building a better working world
“VME professionals perform valuations of companies and individual assets, and must recognize the need for transparent and robust valuations that satisfy corporate, regulatory and accounting requirements. In this environment justifying the value of assets and liabilities has grown more complex and critical for most businesses.
“With connections to audit teams, clients and regulators, it is critically important to ensure that VME professionals make every effort to improve the quality, consistency and transparency of fair value measurements for the benefit of all our stakeholders.”
