Stanley Feldman on Fiduciary Responsibility, Post-Madoff
...
Jim : Stan you recently submitted an article to the Wall Street Journal titled "Fiduciary Responsibility in the Post-Madoff Era.
...
Stan : Well I'm Chairman of Axiom Valuation Solutions, which is a nationally recognized valuation firm. We've been in business since 1999.
...
Jim : Stan, why don't you talk about the article that you've written recently about fiduciary responsibility and maybe tell us how some recent developments have changed the way you look at fiduciary responsibility today.
...
Stan : Sure.
...
Stan : Sure, FAS 157 or financial accounting standard 157 also known as the Fair Value Standard, what it does is it outlines specifically what one has to do to establish the fair value of an asset or a liability.
...
Stan : Alternative investments first is a very broad classification.
...
Stan : Transparency risk refers to the degree to which asset values are likely to be misstated.
...
Stan : In general the answer is no.
...
Stan : Historically what's happened is that investment managers themselves have been the providers of the valuation and the return information.
...
Stan : Of course the thing that you think about immediately when somebody says, "Well I'm invested in a private equity fund and the private equity manager has told me my investment is worth several millions of dollars as of June," for an example.
...
Stan : Sure.
...
Jim : Stan if a listener wants to get additional information about valuing alternative investments for FAS 157, or general information, where can they go?
...
Stan : Well the best place to go is fairvalue157.com that's the best place to go.

Stanley Feldman on the Five Myths About the Fair Value of Alternative Investments
...
Jim : Stan, in our last podcast we discussed the increased responsibilities of fiduciaries in the post Madoff era and under FAS 157, the fair value standard.
...
Stan : Well I think the myths emerged just simply by talking to market participants, particularly fiduciaries, even investment managers.
...
Stan : Sure, that's fine.
...
Stan : This is myth number one because it's the most obvious one.
...
Stan : Yes, in a broad categorization of alternative investments you would think of things like collateralized mortgage obligations, CMOs, or collateralized debt obligations, or even some pass-throughs.
...
Stan : This is a classic one because there are two types of pension funds.
...
Stan : Right, often what will happen is that auditors will look at something and say, "Well that's a very small percentage of the total fund and therefore we can accept, you know, kind of an estimate, ballpark of what we think fair value of the particular assets happen to be.
...
Stan : This is typical.
...
Stan : Well I think the Madoff scandal probably put this myth to rest.
...
Stan : Well first the fiduciaries are always on the hook for not doing their appropriate job.
