Rules in the FCA’s COLL sourcebook require authorised fund managers to ensure that the standing independent valuer values all immovables held with a scheme, on the basis of a full valuation with a physical inspection, at least once a year. In view of the restrictions the Government has put in place on individuals’ mobility in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, the FCA have published a statement today to clarify their expectations of complying with these rules under current circumstances.
