Valuation are not a formulaic exercise where the number pops out at the bottom. A good valuer needs insight and the ability to interpret the nuances of the commercial situation. They also need resilience and integrity to make an objective call and not be influenced by external pressures. Simon Cook has all these attributes and is one of Australia’s most experienced and qualified Business Valuers. Unlike most technical specialists, he is able to communicate complex issues with clarity and turn the complex into the understandable.
