What is Asset Valuation?

Asset valuation simply pertains to the process to determine the value of a specific property, including stocks, options, bonds, buildings, machinery, land or other properties that is conducted usually when a company or asset is to be sold, insured, or taken over or used as underlying for a financial instrument.

The assets may be categorized into tangible and intangible assets. Valuations can be done on either an asset or a liability, such as bonds issued by a company.


Valuing Tangible Assets

Tangible assets refer to a company’s assets that have a physical form, which have been purchased by an organization to produce its products or goods or to provide the services that it offers. Tangible assets can be categorized as either fixed asset, such as structures, land, and machinery, or as a current asset, such as cash.

Other examples of assets are company vehicles, IT equipment, investments, payments, and on-hand stocks.

Valuing Intangible Assets

Intangible assets are assets that take no physical form, but still provide a future benefit to the company. They may include patents, logos, franchises, and trademarks.

A valuation gives you an indication of your negotiations to sell or credit your asset to potential buyers or banks. A valuation is the basis of a sale of your goods in addition to the analysis.

We do not accept analyzes from external institutes as a basis for an assessment.

We know that other “institutes” sign significantly higher ratings for different assets or metals. But the price of a commodity is not a request that you can buy. For us, the acceptance of documentation stands for the price that is paid for it. Please consider this in advance so that you do not end up in a one-way street during your future business ventures and have to rewrite the entire documentation later.

Important: A valuation always refers to the smallest unit of a commodity (eg grams, meters, etc.). The price can only be linearly extrapolated in a few cases. In order to determine the price of your entire lot, we are happy to create one for you Metal audit.

In order to set a price for a metal, we use a network of mine operators, producers, buyers and sellers, intermediaries and end customers that has grown organically for over 10 years.
