Deloitte launches its 2015 Valuation conferences cycle
15 December 2014
On Thursday, 11 December 2014, the introductory session of Deloitte’s upcoming Valuation conferences attracted a wide range of participants across the financial sector, reaffirming the interest of the Luxembourg business community for valuation and risk related matters.
Last Thursday, experts and local players from the banking and alternative fund industries got together to discuss practical issues and share their visions on various topics impacting both valuation and risk functions.

This event was the starting point of a cycle of conferences taking place in 2015, covering various topics, such as: ‘valuation and related risks for funds’, ‘regulatory requirement of sound valuation in credit institutions’, ‘valuation matters for conducting officers and risk managers’, or ‘fair value requirements under IFRS 10 and 13’.
“In a low interest rate environment, investors are giving an increasing importance to alternative asset classes which are often complex and more difficult to value. This trend, combined with stricter valuation requirements resulting from post-crisis regulations, as well as tougher industry guidelines and accounting standards, are putting valuation matters at the forefront more than ever before”, comments Pierre Masset, Corporate Finance partner at Deloitte Luxembourg, who opened the forum.
“For these reasons, we have decided to launch this new program of conferences, dedicated to valuation and risk management, with one goal in mind: provide insights to practitioners on the latest regulatory developments and market best practice, as well as practical examples of how to best navigate this new environment”, he continues.
