Independent Expert Reports / Fairness Reports

When preparing Independent Expert Reports/ Fairness Reports, our valuation specialists ensure the reports are prepared on a fundamentally sound basis, with relevant research, analysis and professional care – all in accordance with relevant legislative requirements and securities law. 

Each Independent Expert Report/ Fairness Report we undertake is different. As the fair and reasonableness report progresses, we bring into play the valuation methodologies and techniques that are most relevant to your engagement.

Global Corporate Advisors ensure when they embark on an assignment that there is strict compliance with independence principles (including the broader Crowe Horwath network), so you can be sure that our reports are uncoloured and unbiased. They are also completely confidential.

You will find reports prepared by our teams to be constructed on a fundamentally sound basis. They use relevant research, analysis and professional care in accordance with relevant securities law and legislative requirements.
