Over the course of the year there have been significant market movements in the valuation which have been carefully considered and the Committee is confident that these were fully reflected by the external valuer. The Committee was satisfied with the valuation process throughout the year. External valuer CBRE Limited are appointed as the external valuer of the Group and they carry out a valuation of the Group’s property assets each quarter, the results of which are incorporated into the Group’s half-year and annual financial statements, and the quarterly net asset statements. The valuations are done in accordance with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors Red Book valuation standards. The Committee reviewed the performance of the valuer and recommended that the appointment be continued for a further 12 months. The Committee awaits the outcome of the consultation process following the RICS Review of Real Estate Investment Valuations and the proposed recommendations.
