The Open End Fund Pricing Project is an industry-wide project conducted in collaboration with INREV, offering insights into the complexities around the pricing of institutional open end real estate funds.  Following on from the consultation last year,  AREF and INREV are proposing to implement the recommendations regarding pricing mechanisms as guidelines

We are holding this interactive members meeting to discuss the proposed guidelines and gather feedback.
