"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 new consultation draft on updated standards
The IVSC issued a consultation draft of a complete set of revised standards at the end of April. The closing date for comments is 28 July 2023. There are some significant changes to the presentation and some additional content, notably new General Standards for Data and Inputs and for Valuation Models.
Even where the IVS are not formally adopted, they have significant impact on valuation practice around the world and therefore we urge all valuers and organisations who rely on valuations to review the draft and respond to IVSC.
We have a dedicated page where you can access the standards and see our comments as they develop.
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.
