Hilco Launches New Unit to Provide Valuation Services for Illiquid and Non …


NEW YORK, Jun 28, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) —
Hilco, a world leader in tangible and intangible asset valuation and
monetization solutions announced the launch of Hilco Valuation Advisory
(“HVA”), which provides independent third party valuations and
reasonableness opinions on existing valuations of less-liquid and
non-publicly traded securities. Clients include private equity funds,
hedge funds and business development companies that invest in such
assets.

Aryeh Sheinbein has been named Managing Director and practice leader. He
had been the head of the internal valuation and asset management group
at Plainfield Asset Management. Prior thereto, he was the co-head of the
Hedge Fund Portfolio Valuation Group at Duff Phelps. Mr. Sheinbein has
also held investment research positions with JP Morgan, UBS and Bank of
America.

“As the market for investing in illiquid securities has evolved, having
an independent third party to value or confirm the value of a fund’s
securities helps investors, auditors and regulators get more comfortable
with the process a fund uses to determine the carrying values,” said Mr.
Sheinbein.

Joining Mr. Sheinbein is Mr. Edward Friedman, Vice President, who also
came from Plainfield Asset Management, where he spent the last three
years specializing in illiquid securities valuations. Prior thereto, Mr.
Friedman was with Duff Phelps, working on a broad range of valuation
services, including private equity and hedge fund clients needing
illiquid asset portfolio valuations.

HVA will take its place within Hilco as part of Hilco Appraisal Services
(“HAS”), the international provider of value assessment solutions
covering all categories of tangible and intangible assets. Thomas
A. Greco, CEO of HAS, said, “The addition of a respected and experienced
portfolio valuation team strengthens our already market-leading
position. Aryeh and Ed bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to our
organization, which will be of great benefit to our customers.”
