What publications do business appraisers read?

BVWireIssue #106-3
July 27, 2011

According to 2011 BV Firm Economics and Best Practices Guide, more BV appraisers read the BVWire than any other professional periodical (see table below). (However, since the BVWire distribution list was used to collect responses for the survey the results may be biased.) The leading paid periodicals are the ASA’s Business Valuation Review and BVR’s BVUpdate:
