About us

Background

Real Quality Rating was created in 2017 by Olivier Mege following a career in investment management, mostly in Tokyo, and with the leading real estate index provider IPD/MSCI. Olivier realised that the rapid growth of real estate as a financial product in the 80’s has meant that the real attributes have been largely neglected. As a result, there is today a disconnect between prices and quality of assets.

The measure of quality for real assets remains difficult as the ranking of values in the real estate market is based on partial and subjective information. It leads to market inefficiencies. Asset, real estate and fund management decisions are not optimal and not sufficiently oriented towards value creation. Similarly, Economic Social and Governance factors are poorly integrated into decision-making, and incentives reward risk-taking rather than skills.

Real Quality Rating provides an objective, holistic, and universal measure of quality based on collective intelligence of the real estate market. The RQR rating model has been designed in conjunction with Paris Dauphine University and the French National Centre for Scientific Research.

Today, RQR supports RICS in its efforts in creating a global standard for real estate data and is a corporate member of IVSC (International Valuation Standard Council). RQR is supported by the European Union.

Mission

RQR provides a quality discovery process at asset, fund, and market level for the benefit of the real estate market ecosystem. We are the bridge between real assets and financial markets.

An economic decision can only be efficient if it is based on both quality and price signals.
