The latest edition of the EPRA BPR Guidelines which focus on making the financial statements of public real estate companies clearer and more comparable across Europe. This in turn enhances the transparency and coherence of the sector as a whole and plays an important role in attracting global flows of capital into the European listed property sector.
These updated 2019 BPR guidelines reflect the significant evolution of the listed real estate sector from long-term passive asset owners into highly active asset managers and capital allocators. Together with the support of EPRA members, we intend to build upon this success with the ultimate target of achieving high standards of reporting transparency across the European listed real estate industry. The suggested EPRA Performance Measures along with the core recommendations for real estate financial reporting are of great importance to investors and analysts.
Having a specific question that is not covered in the EPRA BPR Guidelines? This Q&A document includes questions submited by our members via the BPR Adviser tool since its inception. This guidance should be considered as a ‘live’ document, to which regular updates will be made as each topic develops. The Q&A is intended to facilitate the wider use of the BPR but is not formally part of the BPR.
