How do I set the current value of my investments round by round?

Enterprise clients are able to set a new valuation, round by round, for each company in which they invest and for each fund in which they invest.

By default, Seraf uses the latest round's share price to determine the current valuation of equity holdings and keeps notes and fund investments at their original cost basis, however you can override these default valuations by following the below instructions.

To set the valuation for each round in a company:

  • Use the Add New... button on the left sidebar to add a new Company Valuation or visit Portfolio Management and select the tab for Company Valuations. This will bring you to a table of the current companies in which you are invested and their current valuation based on the latest share price, methodology and date.
  • Click on the name of the company you’d like to re-value. This will bring you to the company's Investment tab within the company's record, where you will see your Current Holdings, Exited Rounds and Historical Valuations for the company.
  • Select the orange button to "Create and Edit Round Valuations".
  • Enter the New Price. Note that for stock rounds "New Price" refers to the share price, while for non-stock securities, such as notes, "New Price" refers to the multiple of the number of units of the security (e.g. each dollar of principal amount of a note or SAFE, or each share of stock for which a warrant may be exercised).
  • 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.
  • Save your entry.
  • Repeat for as many rounds as you'd like.
  • Once you’ve completed all of your valuations, select the button to Update Calculations at the bottom of the page. This step is critical to ensure all of the charts and graphs throughout Seraf reflect the changes in valuation.

To set the valuation for your investments in funds:

  • Use the Add New... button on the left sidebar to add a new Fund Valuation or visit Portfolio Management and select the tab for Fund Valuations. This will bring you to 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.
  • Save your entry.
  • Once you’ve completed all of your valuations, select the button to Update Calculations at the bottom of the page. This step is critical to ensure all of the charts and graphs throughout Seraf reflect the changes in valuation.

After you've entered two or more valuations, you'll see a valuation chart on the company's or fund's profile page. Plus, you can view the history of all valuations recorded by clicking on the Excel or CSV icons on the top right of the valuations pages found within Portfolio Management

Note that Professional Portal account holders can set valuations for companies in which they own shares of stock and for each fund in which they've invested, but they can not set valuations round by round. Enterprise clients can set the general valuation for a company or fund in their portfolio as well as set valuations round by round, as outlined above.

Seraf's custom valuations round by round feature is available to Enterprise clients only. To upgrade your account or to see a list of additional features, log into your account, visit Account Management, and select "Upgrade Now".
