WHAT DISTIN­GUISHES VALUE & RISK

MADE IN GERMANY SINCE 1996

QUALITY FROM THE FRANKFURT BANKING DISTRICT

Founded in 1996 in Frankfurt am Main, Value & Risk since deve­loped into the leading provider of inde­pen­dent valuations of financial products in Germany and into one of the market leaders in this sector in Europe. To Value & Risk, personal contact and close rela­tions are the foun­da­tion of any trus­ting part­nership. We run our opera­ting business from Frankfurt am Main, a city in the heart of Europe and one of the world’s most important financial centres.

Our team is on site at all hours and gives assi­s­tance to our customers in a friendly, solution-oriented and effi­cient manner of highest „Made in Germany”-quality. Over the course of the two decades since the company was founded, we managed to reach a probably unmat­ched level of quality. Our employees are proven experts in their field of acti­vity and are always up to date thanks to constant exchange with other experts as well as trai­nings. What is more, all important steps of our valuation process, the proces­sing of market data and crea­tion of reports are subject to not only a number of auto­mated quality controls but also the 4-eyes control principle.
