What makes a PINZ Registered PMVI Valuer different from a non-registered asset valuer?

Registered PMVI Valuer is an asset valuer (non-real-property) who has been registered and recognised by PINZ as an expert in their field of practice. Depending on their area of expertise, not all Valuers are eligible to become Registered PMVI Valuers.
