By striving for absolute transparency for
every party involved in the valuation process, we achieve consistent results in an efficient manner.
Following the 2008 financial crisis, regulators worldwide have increased their focus on the alternative investment fund industry. As a response to the relatively unregulated market, on July 22, 2012, the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) went into force.
Under the AIFM directive, assets that are not traded on an active market can be subject to either internal valuation of the AIFM or a valuation by an independent valuation agent which is subject to regulatory approval („BaFin-whitelisting“). Respective regulations include processes, methodology and qualifications.
As licensed valuer Caplantic is fully eligible to act as external valuation agent under the AIFMD directive. In situations where the AIFM choses to internalize the valuation function, we offer a broad range of services that target all aspects of regulatory requirements.

FINANCIAL MODELLING & RISK ASSESSMENT
Financial models often represent a significant risk for all parties involved in a transaction. Although financial models are the source for some of the most important deal terms, they are often proprietary in nature and only handled by a small number of specialists. We assist our clients in the creation of transparent and understandable models that minimise model and process risks. We rely on industry standards, like FAST, and our tried and tested technology. We also provide audits of existing models as well as updates and model conversions into transparent, readable formats.
For strategic decisions such as acquisitions or divestments, it is crucial to assess the value of the target investment based on profound quantitative methods. Caplantic provides the appropriate toolkit to conduct valuations based on established best practice approaches. We focus on standardization and automation, as well as efficiency and transparency to give our clients maximum control over strategic decisions, investment performance or other KPIs.
