Based on the analysis of the annual consolidated financial statements of bank institutions in Russian Federation, compiled by international standards, we find that most of the companies applied valuation of investment property at fair value. Our findings also indicate that most of the companies address to independent appraisal for investment property measurement at fair value using market approach. In our research we examined different techniques to investment property measurement based on the income capitalization approach and discounted future cash flows.
