A team of leading Transfer Pricing and Valuation professionals has recently formed Valentiam Group to provide independent and innovative services. The new company comprises specialists trusted by the corporate tax departments and tax advisors of many of the world’s leading corporations.
The founding partners, who previously were affiliated with Economics Partners, believe Valentiam provides a superior independent consulting service platform for clients.
Dan Peters will be the Managing Partner of Valentiam, the name of which is derived from the Latin phrase ad valentiam, “to the value.” Peters held similar positions at KPMG and Duff & Phelps before founding Peters Advisors, the predecessor firm to Valentiam, in 2009.
“Valentiam keeps together a team with unique expertise and experience,” Peters stated. “We are a ‘pure play.’ Our specialists offer tax clients – from Fortune 100 and middle-market companies to the legal, accounting, and advisory firms that serve them – focused Transfer Pricing and Valuation skills to help them achieve their goals.”
Valentiam’s Valuation Services will be led by Carl Hoemke, previously a national tax and valuation partner with Ernst & Young who also founded the property tax practice of Duff & Phelps. Hoemke has developed valuation approaches that have become industry standard in both the elecommunications and power industries.
