Hard to value assets review: summary of findings

During 2017, our supervisors conducted a multi-firm review of how asset management firms value so-called ‘hard to value’ assets.

The review was based on existing rules and guidance. It assessed a range of asset managers of different sizes with various investment strategies including private equity, long-only and alternative managers.
