The IASB has formed an expert advisory panel on valuation of financial instruments in inactive markets, in response to Recommendations made by the Financial Stability Forum (FSF).

The new panel will assist the IASB in:
  • reviewing best practices in the area of valuation techniques, and
  • formulating any necessary additional practice guidance on valuation methods for financial instruments and related disclosures when markets are no longer active.
Organisations participating in the panel include AIG (American International Group); Basel Committee on Banking Supervision; BNP Paribas; Capital International Research Inc.; Citigroup; Deloitte; Deutsche Bank; Ernst & Young; Financial Stability Forum; Fitch Ratings; Goldman Sachs; HSBC; International Association of Insurance Supervisors; International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO); KPMG; Pioneer Investments; PricewaterhouseCoopers; Swiss Re; and UBS. FASB will have a staff observer. The first meeting of the panel will take place on 13 June 2008 in private session. A summary of the meeting will be presented to the IASB at its June 2008 meeting and will be published on its website. More Information on IASB's website.
