Axiom Valuation Solutions Europe GmbH is the newly established, European-based affiliate of Axiom Valuation Solutions, an internationally-recognized, U.S.-based financial security and business valuation firm.
The launch of AVSE coincides with the EU's Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD), which goes into effect on 22 July 2013. AIFMD mandates independent valuations and risk management of holdings for all alternative investment funds in Europe. AVSE is well positioned to provide vetted third party valuations and risk management services for alternative investment funds.
Dr. Thomas Klepsch, based in Germany, is the partner in charge of AVSE and serves as the Vice Chairman of the European Bond Commission. Dr. Klepsch is a globally recognized expert in product development in the areas of risk management, collateral management, fixed income analytics, and performance measurement for global banks.
Dr. Klepsch states, "AIFMD establishes new standards for independent valuations using transparent methodologies and rigorous risk measurement requirements for European-based funds and other funds selling to European investors. AVSE delivers empirically supported, clearly documented valuations and risk assessments in a cost-effective manner."
AVSE also provides a comprehensive set of expert valuation services for private businesses, illiquid securities, fixed income portfolios, intangible and tangible assets, and other hard-to-value assets based in Europe and globally in conjunction with Axiom Valuation Solutions.
