Due diligence is the cornerstone of responsible investment decision-making and is an important process for both investors and investment managers. Due diligence also continues to evolve and this INREV online course addresses current issues and best practices in the due diligence process for non-listed real estate investments in the context of today's markets.

This INREV online course, which consists of four sessions across two weeks, examines investors’ due diligence process and selection criteria as well as how managers adapt to the changing needs of investors while managing the process efficiently. The course also takes a deep dive into specific topics related to legal and tax due diligence, operational due diligence as well as the growing roles of risk management and ESG-related factors. 

The course is taught by leading industry players with an emphasis on group discussions. It also includes multiple case studies, which interlink across the course and culminate in one final case study for the last session.
