How to update fair market value (FMV) for an investment

Keeping your investment multiples up-to-date with FMV

Investment multiples are calculated within Visible by dividing the most recent FMV by the total invested amount.

To update your investment multiple, navigate to the respective company and then click Investments from the left side pane. Next, click Edit FMV to edit the FMV for an investment.

From this view, select Add new value to add an updated FMV. A window will appear below the investment. Add the appropriate data and click the check mark to save the FMV.

Once saved, this will update the Multiple associated with this specific investment. You can see this updated multiple from the Investments section on the respective company's profile.

If you navigate to the overall Investments section located in the bottom left, you will also see an updated combined multiple (i.e. the multiple inclusive of all investments) within the overall Investment page.

Note: The dates associated with the change in the FMV will be reflected on the visualizations on your investment dashboard.

Mark Ups / Mark Downs Based on Follow-on Rounds

Visible suggests an updated FMV for you when a new round of investment has been entered into Visible.

To use this function, enter the new investment round into the company's profile the same way you did for the initial investment.

Updating the FMV automatically changes the multiple displayed on a company's profile and also updates your fund analytics.
