The INREV Due Diligence Questionnaire (DDQ) assists investors and consultants in the due diligence process to understand a fund manager’s structure, strategy and non-listed real estate business. It also gives insight in a specific vehicle’s strategy, risk processes, management, terms and projected performance. With it, investors can determine, in principle, whether a proposal fits their investment objectives.
DDQ was updated in July 2018. New version reflects the feedback received from INREV members during a two-month consultation period.
The Due Diligence Data Room Guidelines is an additional tool prepared by INREV to make the due diligence process more effective. This framework aims to provide guidance under the form of a table of contents and not to impose a rigid structure.
2018 marked the tenth anniversary of the Great Financial Crash. So disastrous for so many, the crash demonstrated the global systematic problems across all asset classes at the time, with the real estate industry being no exception.
