VAS Group launches consultancy business
VAS Group has launched an independent valuations consultancy business.
According to the firm, the business will provide solutions to European lenders, financial institutions and investment fund managers.
The business has been co-founded by Taco Brink who has over 30 years’ experience in valuation management and review experience.
Brink has spent time at Situs RERC Europe, Altus Group and DTZ Pan-EU International Valuation Coordination Group.
Moreover, the business intends to aid clients in policies and regulatory requirements.
Brink said: “Valuation management and review services are becoming a critical ingredient in delivering best practice, helping clients to comply with increased scrutiny from the regulatory community and investor demands.
“The new business will play a vital role in this process, providing a truly independent and transparent valuation and review process.
“Our services provide the added confidence for investors and relieves the conflicts of interest inherent when relying solely on an in-house review process with a limited panel of independent valuers to choose from.
“Combining VAS Group’s existing platforms with our team of highly experienced pan-European professionals will allow us to provide an unparalleled service to our clients.
Stephen Todd, joint co-founder of VAS Group, added: “Our core group mission is to help reduce risk and provide an excellent service for our partners, the new business will continue this proposition within a new market, helping strengthen our overall offering.”
