IPF Commissions Next Stage of Real Estate Lending Valuations Study

The global financial crisis highlighted the adverse impact of excessive commercial real estate lending on the UK economy, which had developed to a scale where it had become a systemic risk.

Over subsequent years, the Property Industry Alliance Debt Group (PIA DG) has worked to understand these risks, resulting in the 2014 Vision For Real Estate Finance report. This put forward a number of recommendations, a key one of which was the use of long-term value to act as a reference point against which to judge current market value and provide valuable information about where values are relative to previous peaks and troughs. 

Following development of the concept of a Long Term Value methodology, and recognising the significant benefits for the wider property market and economy, the IPF Research Programme (2015-2018) has commissioned the University of Cambridge, led by Professor Colin Lizieri and Nick Mansley, to interrogate and develop the findings from this initial work of the PIA DG Long Term Value group.

The research findings will be published in 2019.
