In the estate and trust world, the determination of fair market value of assets is common. In the case of marketable securities, our software and know-how settle the fair market value (FMV) issue. In other instances, the asset is more difficult to value. Enter the world of appraisers.
We have relationships with some of the best appraisers in the world. We can obtain appraisals and the like for real estate, businesses, equipment, etc. Our relationships with appraisers extend to the point where they know the purpose of the appraisal (estate tax purposes, buy-sell agreement instances, gift tax purposes, etc.).
