Billing rates, bonuses, and big revenue generators for BV

BVWireIssue #68-1
May 7, 2008

Do trust and estates still generate the largest revenues for most BV firms?  Are BV practices still suffering from professional staffing shortages at the mid- and senior-levels?  What about retaining experienced staff: Will most BV firms pay another 5% to 9.9% salary increase this year for all positions?  Will average hourly billing rates increase from current levels— approximately $120 per hour for junior analysts, $175 for seniors, and $250 for partners?

BVResource’s 2008 Firm Economics & Best Practices Survey will answer all these questions and more.  Still the single-most comprehensive study of the business valuation profession, this year’s data will provide current and comparable benchmarks for compensation (including bonus plans), practice specialization, financial performance (annual gross revenues and billings), firm marketing and technology, etc.  Respondents will receive a free summary of the results and the final 2008 Survey at substantial discount ($150).  To participate in this year’s study—which already promises to provide the biggest, best data yet—click here
