SVCA Workshop: Portfolio Valuation for Alternative Investment Funds

On the 18th of August 2017, a number of the venture capital (VC) and private equity (PE) practitioners gathered at the M Hotel as David L. Larsen and Srividya Gopalakrishnan shared Duff & Phelps’s approach to portfolio valuation for alternative investment funds.

David and Srividya covered the principles behind international portfolio valuation standards and guidelines such as IPEVC and FRS 113. Different valuation methodologies such as Capital Structure Value Estimation and Securities Value Estimation that are applicable to Early Stage and Later Stage companies were dealt with authoritatively. Several case studies were presented and David led the participants through  examples and exercises to actively test their understanding and clearing any misconceptions of the concepts presented in the workshop.

The workshop was awash with active participation alongside insightful questions and comments. The participants shared their experiences and problems that they experienced while evaluating their own portfolios, contributing to the overall conducive atmosphere and thereby enhancing the participants’ learning experience.

The SVCA thanks all of our participants for their active attendance and for Duff & Phelps for their invaluable contribution.
