One particular challenge in a high-asset divorce is how everything is valued. This is where it is beneficial to bring in valuation experts, objective professionals who can make accurate assessments of the couple’s property and assets based on traditional and accepted methodologies and metrics. These types of experts are often associated with an accounting firm and may even carry a special designation. While these experts are usually a solid choice for valuing assets like a privately held company or a party’s stake in a family business, even more specialized knowledge may be necessary for the proper handling of interests related to investments. If, for example, an asset like pre-IPO stock is split between a CEO and his soon-to-be former spouse, the transfers of ownership and sales and any contingencies related to distribution need to be carefully evaluated in the assessment process.
