Enhancing trust in business valuation – increasing transparency and consistency

Event overview

In connection to an increasing concern in valuation for corporate transactions, this full-day conference addresses the significance of business valuation in financial markets, and evaluates the regulatory framework that upholds Hong Kong as a financial hub characterised by integrity and transparency.

Regulators, investors, company directors and business valuers will examine challenges and opportunities around practices, regulations, risks and liabilities of business valuation and the profession. Drawing from overseas experience aided by insights from stakeholders in Hong Kong, the conference aims to come up with a blueprint for a more transparent financial environment.
