Who has issued the most business valuation credentials?

Well...according to The National Association of Certified Valuation Analysts, the winner is...NACVA.   And to confirm it they've posted a current (as of third quarter 2012) and comprehensive Business Valuation (BV) and Financial Forensics Credential Comparison Chart.

The summary chart of nine separate credentials provides a side-by-side list of their prerequisites, training requirements, recertification requirements, and “other” features, such as the credentialing organization’s annual dues and the approximate number of designees holding each credential. Leading the way: NACVA, with 5,100 CVA designees, followed by ABV, with 3,000 designees, and ASA, 1,200 designees.
