What Property Investors Need to Know About Sustainable And Impact Investing

Article | May 31, 2021

There’s no escaping the importance of sustainability in any investment sector. Globally, Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) investing is worth $30 trillion in assets under management each year, around a quarter of all professionally-managed assets. It is more relevant than ever as the ‘high impact, low probability’ shock imposed by Covid-19 has strengthened the case for prioritising people and planet alongside profits, and illustrated the power of collective action to tackle global problems. Many investors are unaware how significant this trend will be. If you are an investor, you need to consider why sustainability will be important, what sustainable property investing actually means, and what the major issues and opportunities are, as these will affect your risks and returns. Why is sustainability so important for investors? The UK’s legally-binding commitment to achieve net carbon zero by 2050 means that sustainability is no longer a ‘nice to have’. Our legal obligation is showing up in the form of new rules, regulations and best practices affecting all sectors that contribute to emissions. 40 per cent of UK emissions come from households, which makes the chance of more regulations and policies around the environmental performance of property more likely than not. These regulations will not only affect your ability to operate in a way that is compliant, but fundamentally change the value, performance and risk associated with your investments.

And like other industries, one of the critical challenges with the emergence of real estate data is the ability to understand and communicate what we actually mean when we lump every bit of information into a generic term like “data.” Depending on who you speak with in the real estate space, data can mean a variety of different things. For some in commercial real estate, data is all-encompassing and includes every bit of information available about a property. For others, data includes information about how the building works and all of the relevant systems that power a modern building. And yet for others in commercial real estate, data is everything captured around a transaction related to a specific piece of property.

Article | April 3, 2020

It is where the AI (Artificial Intelligence) takes over days worth of a real estate agent's hard work and computes results in a second. We are moving at an unprecedented pace in technology and everything seems to be moving faster with time - Data capture, data analysis, home comparables, broker commission splits, transaction timeline and much more.
