Sterling Valuation Group caters to the needs of each client and offers a range of services, with expertise in hedge fund strategies, securities and derivatives, and the valuation of complex, illiquid assets.

Hedge Fund Industry Overview

Sterling Valuation Group understands that hedge fund managers must respond to regulatory and investor concerns over internal valuation practices and procedures. We provide independent valuations for a broad range of hedge fund strategies, using sophisticated industry-standard pricing models. Sterling succeeds at producing outstanding results through a focused and refined analysis process. As the premier independent investment valuation service, the firm specializes in tailoring its services to the particular needs of the client. Sterling is able to provide focused, independent valuation opinions since it is not affiliated with a financial or other institution, and it does not have any interest in the underlying investment transactions.
