Q3 – Global Performance Report 2017-18

Q3

rics.org


Introduction Reflecting the strategic direction we are taking, and the expectations placed on us, we continue to deliver on our ambitious vision set out by Governing Council: Through our credentials and our professional standards, we will create confidence in markets and be known for effecting positive change in the built and natural environments. We believe demand for our profession will continue to grow as the forecast pace of global urbanisation builds to 2050, coupled with an increasing and shifting population, climate change and rising pressures on food, water and energy supplies. Professionals must lead the way in addressing these trends, working to consistent technical standards and upholding the highest standards of ethics. A willing acceptance of and adherence to independent self-regulation and scrutiny distinguishes RICS and the profession around the world. Our business plan for 2017-20 sets three strategic priorities that will position RICS as a fit, globally relevant and trusted professional body for the 21st century: • Trusted: the standards to which RICS professionals work are demanded and adopted in the major economies of the world; as a result of market demand for RICS standards and credentials, highly talented individuals choose to qualify and work to our standards, and we remain trusted to set and enforce standards for the profession.

• Influential: RICS is an influential body on issues of global significance and brings about beneficial change in the world. • Sustainable: the organisation is efficient and financially stable, and the profession and RICS employees are highly engaged, proud and increasingly diverse. As a body aspiring to create standards of global relevance, our collaboration with like-minded organisations is essential to set a framework of standards that will help us realise our vision to create confidence in markets and effect positive change in the built and natural environments. Significant milestones in this quarter: • In our 150th Anniversary Year, the third Summit of the World Built Environment Forum lifted our profile on strategic issues to new levels. The Summit attracted around 1,000 delegates from China to Panama and showcased RICS’ credentials as a global convener of influential figures. Working collaboratively, our profession is unquestionably at the forefront of setting the future direction for the built environment.

• MIPIM 2018 in Cannes saw RICS deepen relationships with global leaders in our world, with a particular focus on the impact of technology on real estate. • Members of our profession in the field of valuation will now be admitted as members of the Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors (HKIS), a statutory body, through a reciprocal agreement. This Q3 report is a summary of RICS’ worldwide performance against our objectives and strategic goals in the third quarter of the 2017/2018 financial year (February – April 2018). It is available to all members of the profession, employees and other key stakeholders. We welcome all comments on this report.

International Standards adoption Four major organisations in cities across China have adopted International Construction Measurement Standards (ICMS).

Influence through insight In April the RICS World Built Environment Forum reached new heights at Summit London 2018. RICS convened visionary thinkers, global disruptors, heavyweight investors and city leaders within a single programme focused on the major global trends shaping society and our sector. Together, they told a new, positive story about the future of the built environment and how our industry can help make it a reality. The Summit generated a wealth of insights and ideas to help shape our standards and professional qualifications. We continued to demonstrate our market knowledge to key audiences • Our UK Residential Market Survey once again generated significant media coverage. The Times described the survey as a key indicator of the residential market used by Government, the Bank of England and the IMF. 1,800 members contributed to RICS’ Q1 2018 Global Commercial Property Monitor, representing 36 cities from around the world. • At MIPIM 2018 in Cannes we deepened relationships with global leaders on investment risk, PropTech and future talent.


RICS insight adopted The World Built Environment Forum has opened doors for RICS to shape others’ thinking • The World Economic Forum invited RICS to recommend best practice on BIM as part of a report for the global construction industry. • The Bank of England invited RICS to shape recommendations under the Government’s Green Finance Initiative, aimed at accelerating investment into sustainable assets. • President John Hughes FRICS met the UK Minister for International Trade to discuss standards, mutual recognition of qualifications, skills and immigration.

A sustainable profession

“Mankind’s trek towards the city is synchronised with many other important factors: the climate imperative, technology’s exponential rise, a globalising economy, a new form of engaged citizenry and rising populism.”

• IFMA and RICS have agreed further steps towards offering a comprehensive catalogue of professional development qualifications in Facilities Management. • RICS also unveiled its Technology Affiliate Programme at MIPIM, a PropTech portal to help professionals navigate the technological advances impacting the built environment. Featuring nearly 50 affiliate PropTech companies, the programme is open to any business offering data and technology solutions to the property sector, from start-ups to large multi-national organisations. • Summit London 2018 featured dedicated sessions on how the sector can attract and retain female talent, and on young professionals. Around 100 “Rising Stars” were sponsored to attend the Summit.
