How do I add a new valuation?

With Valuations, you are able to set a new valuation for each company in which you own shares of stock and for each fund in which you invest.

To set the valuation for your investments in companies: 

  • Visit Portfolio Management and select the tab for Company Valuations. There, you will see a table of the current companies in which you are invested. The share price and date from the latest round of financing is recorded as the default financing method used to value your portfolio. 
  • Find the company you’d like to value.
  • Enter the New Price / Share.
  • Select the New Methodology from one of the drop-down categories:
      • Mark to Market
      • 409a Valuation
      • Company Accountant Letter
      • Comparable Companies
      • Discounted Cash Flow
      • Financing
      • Other (write in description)
  • Enter the New Date (MM/DD/YYYY) for the valuation.
  • Select “Save”.
  • For Enterprise clients only, once you’ve completed all of your valuations, scroll to the bottom of the page and select the button to Update Calculations. This step is critical to ensure all of the charts and graphs throughout Seraf reflect the changes in valuation across your entire portfolio.

Note that only investments with shares of stock can be revalued at this time, while notes will continue to be valued at their original cost basis.

 

To set the valuation for your investments in funds:

  • Visit Portfolio Management and select the tab for Fund Valuations. There, you will see a table of the current funds in which you are invested. A Current Multiple of 1 is recorded as the default investment multiple of the cost basis used to value your portfolio. 
  • Find the fund you’d like to value.
  • Enter the New Multiple.
  • Select the New Methodology from one of the drop-down categories:
      • Mark to Market
      • 409a Valuation
      • Company Accountant Letter
      • Comparable Companies
      • Discounted Cash Flow
      • Financing
      • Other (write in description)
  • Enter the New Date (MM/DD/YYYY) for the valuation.
  • Select “Save”.
  • For Enterprise clients only, once you’ve completed all of your valuations, scroll to the bottom of the page and select the button to Update Calculations. This step is critical to ensure all of the charts and graphs throughout Seraf reflect the changes in valuation.
