Vipal Monga reports in The Wall Street Journal’s CFO Journal on a new credential being developed by AICPA and other organizations to bring more consistency to the valuation profession. A goal of the new credential is to better document valuation assumptions to reduce the number of questions auditors raise about fair value measurement results. Overall, investors and regulators need to have confidence in valuation estimates to ensure the public trust, said Mark Zyla, a managing director at Acuitas Inc. (and a member of the AICPA’s Forensic and Valuation Services Executive Committee).
