ANREV – the Asian Association for Investors in Non-Listed Real Estate Vehicles and INREV - the European Association for Investors in Non-Listed Real Estate Vehicles are looking for a Data Integration Expert to support the execution of a strategic IT Roadmap to integrate and streamline data collection. 

About ANREV

ANREV is the Asian association for Investors in Non-listed Real Estate Vehicles, Asia Pacific's leading platform for the sharing of knowledge on the non-listed real estate funds sector. ANREV’s goal is to improve transparency, professionalism and best practices across the industry, making non-listed real estate funds more accessible and attractive to investors.

In many respects ANREV’s key output and services are modelled on the work of INREV. Some of ANREV’s founding member corporations have strong links with INREVs early development so there is a common ancestry between the two organisations, though they are separate entities. 

ANREV and INREV work together very closely on a product matrix of output which means there is regular interaction between Board members, senior staff and the operations teams on both sides.

ANREV’s Executive Office is in Hong Kong where a team of 13 staff run the association’s output and services across the Asia Pacific region. In addition, there is a regional director based in Europe. 

About INREV

INREV is Europe’s leading platform for sharing knowledge on the non-listed real estate industry. INREV’s goals are very similar to ANREV, but with a focus on the European non-listed real estate industry. 

INREV’s activities range from data collection and research, to the publication of industry guidelines and the organisation of events and training courses for members and the wider industry.

The INREV team currently has 30 people, with 27 in the Amsterdam office and 3 in the Brussels office.
