August 2020

  • ASIC has yesterday issued an article entitled “Managed fund asset valuations must be reliable during COVID-19”.
  • The ASIC article is an important and timely read for all real estate investment trust market stakeholders including REIT managers and their boards, trustees and custodians, equity and debt capital providers, and advisors including audit, accounting, legal as well as independent valuers.
  • In addressing the valuation of illiquid fund assets in the COVID 19 economy, the article reminds stakeholders of the need for regular and current valuations and that valuation processes need to be robust such that they meet a Responsible Entity’s statutory duties.
  • It also discusses rental cash flow uncertainty and the prospect of a lack of comparable transactional data in the context of valuations.
  • The article may be found at the following link to the ASIC website.
