We are grateful for the involvement and support of INREV (European Association for Investors in Non-Listed Real Estate Vehicles) and EMF-ECBC (European Mortgage Federation-European Covered Bond Council).

Only by continuing the discussion between providers of valuations and their clients can we futureproof the valuation profession and ensure a continued added value.
