IPEV Valuation Guidelines

Private equity and venture capital fund managers are required to undertake periodic valuations of their investments as part of an ongoing reporting process to their fund investors.

The International Private Equity and Venture Capital Valuation (IPEV) Guidelines puts forward recommendations, intended to correspond to current best practice, on the valuation of private equity and venture capital investments.

The IPEV Board published a review timeline for its Valuation Guidelines in 2021 which included the launch of a consultation period. The Guidelines were last updated in 2018 as part of the triennial review process. In 2020, the Board published guidance during the COVID-19 pandemic setting out areas to consider during periods of significant uncertainty. In October 2022, draft amendments were published for consultation, following feedback received from industry participants. The BVCA responded to the consultation and the final updated Guidelines have been published. You can find these here.
