Financial institutions that have access to independent valuations are better prepared in both liquid and illiquid markets. Black Swan Consulting’s unique valuation framework is clear and consistent and is specifically designed with transparency and regulatory compliance in mind. Our firm’s valuation methodology utilizes a granular credit approach that provides outputs useful in OTTI determination. Our methodology has been used by many institutions with respect to FASB 157 accounting.
Even large institutions with experienced personnel can benefit from independent valuations that utilize a credit-driven framework. By incorporating model-driven valuations, investment managers can assess whether market prices are consistent with performance.
