Our mission

As valuation solely based on prices, has failed to capture collective aspirations, RQR enables the Industry to produce and finance the real estate that people desire.

How does RQR achieve that ?

By connecting financial value to stakeholders’ sustainable preferences, thanks to a holistic and preference-driven valuation system

How RQR came about?

The concept of RQR has emerged from my extensive 25-year career in the asset management and financial indices industries, during which I have witnessed:

  • the significant negative impacts on end-investors when they are not able to accurately measure quality (wrong investment decisions, misleading financial benchmarking analyses, wet finger valuations, etc.)
  • investors’ unsuccessful attempt to create home-grown rating systems
