INREV Due Diligence Questionnaires (DDQ)  

Published on 21 Jul 2020

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.

The INREV DDQ was updated in July 2018. New version reflects the feedback received from INREV members during a two-month consultation period.

Climate risk assessment in global real estate investing  

Published on 20 Jul 2020

Climate change is affecting the mindset of investors globally in a multitude of ways. A term originally defined for companies in the coal and oil industry ‘stranded asset risk’, is increasingly part of the broader investment vocabulary and linked to climate change. As a result of increasing awareness but also the Paris Climate Agreement, more and more real estate investors are taking climate-related financial risks into account. From a real estate perspective, properties are unlikely to become truly stranded as could happen with an oil well, but they do run the risk of becoming obsolete if they are no longer capable of generating rental income. In our view climate change related factors could cause property obsolescence through two partially related channels. The first is due to a lack of adherence to local regulation which forbids landlords to lease space and as such generate income.

The real estate investment industry will inevitably be impacted by the effects of COVID-19 but some sectors will be hit harder than others. Retail and hotel have been among the first victims of this crisis, with declining rents and lower occupancy rates. The office sector has been relatively unscathed compared to others but what’s going to happen in the long term? Last but not least logistics, online demand is fuelling the growth of e-commerce and logistics, which opportunities will this sector bring to real estate investors?
