Real estate is going through significant digitalisation, as consumers increasingly acquire products and services online. The speed of digitalisation is amplified by the need for Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) and regulatory reporting, due to climate change and other environmental considerations.
The data analytics team, often in partnership with leading academic and research institutions, has developed and is maintaining databases and models available to:
· Monitor real estate dynamics by mapping transactions, asking prices, new construction, and changes in population demographics, to identify opportunities for growth, changes in market activity and pricing, and manage market risk
· Carry out risk assessment by considering environmental, acute risks, such as earthquakes, floods, wildfire, landslides, etc
· ESG assessment by considering acute risks, such as earthquakes, floods, wildfire, landslides, etc, chronic risks, such as changes due to climate change under various emission scenarios, and the energy performance of buildings
Ask WiRE’s proprietary analytics and technology platforms enable the provision and management of granular information using DaaS (Data-as-a-Service) and SaaS (Software-as-a-Service).
