IVC Methodologies

IVC’s data collection and analysis technics are based on profound methodologies, which have been tried-and-true over the years. We are on a continuous journey to examine, adjust and improve them. Since a large portion of the data in our universe is unavailable or at least unverified, IVC tends towards conservativism and transparency.

These methodologies echo these notions.
