BVWireIssue #178-2
July 19, 2017

Researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison are conducting a survey on the complexity of financial instruments and would like the input of valuation experts. Because assessing the level of complexity of various financial instruments is highly subjective, this study is designed to help researchers categorize various complex financial instruments according to both valuation and structural complexity. Please fill out the Valuation Specialist Survey, which will take between five and 25 minutes depending on the number of categories of financial instruments that you value. Your responses are strictly confidential. When you complete the survey, you will receive a $10 Starbucks gift card. The full title of the survey is The Effects of Valuation and Instrument Structural Complexity on the Preparation and Assessment of the Reasonableness of Fair Value Measurements for Complex Financial Instruments. Thanks in advance for your help!
