Valuation Services

Value creation is the source for business success. However, valuation is a complex and sometimes controversial subject. It requires in-depth understanding of the company, its competitors and the market in general. It demands to understand and interpret financial and non-financial information, as well as factors such as the legal and regulatory environment.

Our valuation group has deep understanding of all aspects of valuation and broad experience in valuing shares, businesses, and intangible assets. We provide valuation insights to our clients in various situations such as mergers and acquisitions, restructurings, for tax purposes, and for regulatory and financial reporting purposes.

We bring the commercial perspective to bear in disputed valuations.

Who we are

Our Swiss valuation team includes 10 qualified professionals from a variety of backgrounds. In order to provide our clients with the best service and insights, we work closely together with our valuation colleagues from the global Deloitte valuation network and with specialised industry teams - this gives our clients access to a team of over 1,200 dedicated valuation experts operating in all major markets, industries and jurisdictions.
