IFVI established the Valuation Technical & Practitioner Committee (VTPC) to direct, validate, and approve the research and methodology produced by the cooperation of IFVI and the Value Balancing Alliance (VBA). 

The VTPC is led by Chair George Serafeim, Charles M. Williams Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School, and Vice Chair Sonja Haut, Head of Impact Valuation at Novartis.

To learn more about the selection criteria for VTPC members, the general procedures of the Committee, and how the VTPC will engage with IFVI and VBA, please see the VTPC Terms of Reference. To learn about the process that governs our research and methodology, see the Due Process Protocol.

As part of our commitment to transparency, all VTPC meeting agendas and minutes are made public.
