In late 2017, RICS produced a European report, The Future of Valuations, which reviewed and assessed the changing roles of valuation professionals particularly as they relate to technology-enabled disruption and shifting client expectations.

More recently, in gathering views of senior end users and valuers in Australia, we found that local experiences largely reflected those of our colleagues in Europe.

Recurring themes included:

  • Valuation service: Moving beyond providing just a ‘number’ (market value) into advisory roles.
  • Reporting: Modularisation, consistency and interactivity.
  • Technology enablers: Creating data gathering/sharing efficiencies.
  • Technology challenges: Data integrity, transparency of valuation black boxes.

Our expert panel will explore these and related themes in more detail.

Come for the insights or join the discussion in the Q&A. Your contribution will help ensure our Valuation Assurance Regime continues to meet the demands of local stakeholders in a rapidly changing environment.
