Adam, do you even know what those words mean?
In what way are they scary?
The mark-to-market process is a total non-event, it's something that
goes on constantly any time you hold an asset and need to know how
much it's worth. The only question --- ONLY question --- is how
often you sample the market price and use it to revalue your asset.
The more constant, the better, as it allows you to continuously
adjust for risk. If your asset manager isn't frequently (if not
continuously) marking their investments to market and adjusting
accordingly, you've got *real* trouble.
