The International Private Equity and Venture Capital Valuation Guidelines were developed by AFIC (Association Française des Investisseurs en Capital), BVCA (British Venture Capital Association) and EVCA (European Private Equity and Venture Capital Association) to reflect the need for greater comparability for both investors and investment managers across the industry internationally and for consistency with IFRS and US GAAP. The guidelines set out recommendations, intended to represent current best practice, on the valuation of private equity and venture capital investments, and to be applicable across the whole range of investment types (seed and start-up venture capital, buy-outs, growth/development capital, etc) and financial instruments commonly held by private equity funds.
