The International Private Equity and Venture Capital Valuation Guidelines were developed by the Association Française des Investisseurs en Capital (AFIC), the British Venture Capital Association (BVCA) and the European Private Equity and Venture Capital Association (EVCA) and were launched in March 2005 to reflect the need for greater comparability across the industry and for consistency with IFRS and US GAAP accounting principles. Valuation guidelines are used by the private equity and venture capital industry for valuing private equity investments and provide a framework for fund managers and investors to monitor the value of existing investments. The new guidelines are based on the overall principle of ‘fair value’ in order to be consistent with IFRS and US GAAP.international_pe_vc_valuation_guidelines_oct_20061

AFIC, BVCA and EVCA also created an independent board (International Private Equity and Venture Capital Valuation Board – IPEV Valuation Board) reporting and accountable to a general assembly composed of all the endorsing associations to manage the evolution of the guidelines going forward.
