Additional Information

13. Investment properties/ Continued In addition, the Group’s investment properties are valued quarterly by CBRE Limited. The valuations are based on: ‒ Information provided by the Group including rents, lease terms, revenue and capital expenditure. Such information is derived from the Group’s financial and property systems and is subject to the Group’s overall control environment. ‒ Valuation models used by the valuers, including market-related assumptions based on their professional judgement and market observation. The assumptions and valuation models used by the valuers, and supporting information, are reviewed by senior management and the Board through the Property Valuation Committee. Members of the Property Valuation Committee, together with senior management, meet with the independent valuer on a quarterly basis to review the valuations and underlying assumptions, including considering current market trends and conditions, and changes from previous quarters. The Board will also consider whether circumstances at specific investment properties, such as alternative uses and issues with occupational tenants, are appropriately reflected in the valuations. The fair value of investment properties is measured based on each property’s highest and best use from a market participant’s perspective and considers the potential uses of the property that are physically possible, legally permissible and financially feasible. As at 31 March 2023 and 31 March 2022 all of the Group’s properties, including owner-occupied property, are Level 3 in the fair value hierarchy as it involves use of significant judgement. There were no transfers between levels during the year and the prior year. Level 3 inputs used in valuing the properties are those which are unobservable, as opposed to Level 1 (inputs from quoted prices) and Level 2 (observable inputs either directly, i.e. as prices, or indirectly, as derived from prices). Information on these significant unobservable inputs per sector of investment properties is disclosed as follows: 2023 2022 Office Industrial Retail and Leisure Office Industrial Retail and Leisure Appraised value (£000) 245,260 439,570 81,405 251,125 509,730 88,470 Area (sq ft, 000s) 877 3,240 692 828 3,240 692

An increase/decrease in ERV will increase/decrease valuations, while an increase/decrease to yield decreases/increases valuations. We have reviewed the ranges used in assessing the impact of changes in unobservable inputs on the fair value of the Group’s property portfolio and concluded these were still reasonable. The table below sets out the sensitivity of the valuation to changes of 50 basis points in yield.
