Convergent Capital Appraisers is a full-service business valuation firm located in Houston, Texas. Founded in 2007 as a successor to former valuation firms, we specialize in providing to our clientele valuations of closely-held operating businesses, family investment entities and a variety of other financial assets. The valuation services we offer are used for various purposes, including: estate and gift taxes, marital dissolution, mergers and acquisitions, shareholder and partner disputes, and ESOPs.

The business valuation field is highly technical and is as much art as science – the key to our success in this arena is knowledge and experience. Knowing and understanding the various rules, regulations, approaches and methodologies to conduct a business valuation can be challenging. For such a complex undertaking, our professionals have the experience, skill and attention to detail to determine appropriate regulation guidance, the valuation approaches and methods that are best suited for your valuation project – and the understanding of how to bring all the relevant factors together to develop an accurate and defensible value conclusion.
The professionals at Convergent Capital Appraisers hold relevant professional designations and degrees including: Accredited Senior Appraiser (ASA), Accredited in Business Valuation (ABV) and Master of Business Administration (MBA). All valuation engagements undertaken by Convergent Capital Appraisers consider the various elements of appraisal theory developed by The American Society of Appraisers (ASA) and are performed under the ASA's Principles of Appraisal Practice and Code of Ethics, as well as the Statements on Standards for Valuation Services No. 1 issued by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. In the preparation of our valuation reports, we also conform to the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice "USPAP" as developed by The Appraisal Foundation.
