Another step for transparency: Further clarity around AUM
Within the non-listed real estate industry, the definitions, calculations and uses of ‘Assets Under Management’ (AUM) vary significantly. As such, INREV, ANREV and NCREIF PREA Reporting Standards together with the Global Standards Steering Committee (SSC) have conducted a high level research to assess the current definition and use of AUM including calculation methods. The research results provide a clear overview of each component considered by investment managers used to calculate AUM and reflects the main differences in approach.
As a next step, the SSC intend to release a disclosure tool to facilitate reporting of the main AUM component.
