With a population of over 1.25 billion India is one of the biggest and fastest growing economies in the world - standards and professionalism are of significant importance.In the absence of standards of business valuation the valuation is more on an art based on the professional experience of the valuer rather than a science based on empirical studies and logics.At present there are no prescribed standards and codes for valuation in India, in many cases the valuation lacks the uniformity and generally accepted global valuation practices.Though the value of a business can be objectively determined employing valuation approaches, this value is still subjective, dependent on buyer and seller expectations and subsequent negotiations and use of professional judgment is an essential component of estimating value. New laws regarding Valuation are being discussed and is in the process of being drafted by government bodies. At the summit, we will have a discussion on the requirement and the importance of these laws. We will try to find out how these proposed laws will impact the current practices of the valuation profession.
We have invited experts from International Bodies like IVSC,IIBV, stakeholders from India, including different regulators, corporations and corporate affairs ministry to discuss the future of Valuation in India. We also intend to invite Private Equity and Startups professionals to discuss the significance of valuation for Startups. We are expecting a 200+ audience to be part of this summit.
