In the world of accounting and valuation, much consternation exists among CPAs, Government Auditors, Financial Analysts, and Credentialed Valuators regarding the determination of the fair value of financial instruments. Both the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) have identified the fair value reporting of financial instruments as one of the top priorities needing improvements. Most prominent among the reasons given for the failures to accurately determine the values of these financial constructs is the complexity of these instruments, which are steadily increasing as a result of enhanced computing capabilities. And, this apprehension is not limited to the United States; the International Valuation Standards Council (IVSC) also expressed major concerns over the lack of quality derivative product valuations. To address this issue, the Center for International Business Valuation, a research think tank, consulting, and training organization in partnership with IACVS developed this course to support business valuation professionals make informed decisions.
