A first for BV in Africa

NACVA, under the auspices of its international arm the International Association of Consultants, Valuators and Analysts (IACVA) will be administering a CVA test in Accra, Ghana in November. BVWire believes this is the first time a business valuation certification exam has been administered in Africa. Ghana is a natural location because of it's early adoption of IFRS, and the fact that many of its accountants have reached out internationally for business valuation training.

Bennet Kpentey is the current president of the Ghana Charter of IACVA.

The examination follows the teaching last month of NACVA's intangible asset valuation class by Jim Catty. Catty, the chair of IACVA, reports that 50 financial professionals attended his sessions.
