The International Association of Certified Valuation Specialists, in conjunction with the Center for International Business Valuation, has added an advanced level to the International Certified Valuation Specialist (ICVS) credential. Valuators can now earn the ICVS with Advanced Studies in Financial Instruments (ICVS-A). The ICVS-A designation can be earned along with the initial ICVS or can be added to enhance a current ICVS credential. The ICVS-A designation requires an understanding of valuation techniques for various financial instruments, ranging from basic securities to complex derivative constructs.

Live training begins: The inaugural live training, presented with the Southeast Chapter of Business Appraisers, will be held in Orlando, Fla., on December 16, December 17, and December 18. Business valuators with a credential such as the ICVS, ASA, ABV, CICBV, BCA, or CVA are welcome to attend. Upon completion of the training program, students can participate in the ICVS-A credentialing exam. For more information, there’s an ICVS-A brochure; to register for the training, click here.
