"A value is valuable when the value of value is valuable to oneself."
Dayananda Saraswati 1824-1883
Values and valuation are much discussed but often misunderstood. In the financial world this can lead to misunderstanding, market inefficiency and mispricing.
Valuology advises valuation providers, valuation users and professional organisations on how their processes and procedures can be improved to ensure that valuations are properly prepared and understood by those who rely on them. Our objective is to maximise market confidence in the valuations provided and minimise risks for providers and users.

IVSC issues latest edition of standards
Following consulation on an Exposure Draft issued at the beginning of this year the IVSC published a revised IVS edition in early August. It is designed to become effective from the end of January 2022, although the exact date will depend on each adopter's policies and processes.
The new edition can be purchased from the IVSC or maybe available through member organisations.
We have produced a summary of the changes from the current IVS issued in 2019, together with our observations and comments.
Resources for Valuers
We publish useful information for valuers on various technical issues. Available as booklets or as eBooks, they provide an affordable resource for the busy practitioner.
We review proposed new laws, regulations and standards that are relevant to valuers. We then produce summaries of the key things valuers need to know and what we think of the proposals. We also provide a copy of any response we make to consultations.
