Considerate construction schemes
The proportion of construction sites controlled by the reporting company which are registered under the Dutch considerate construction scheme ‘Bewuste Bouwers’ in a reporting year, weighted by purchase price.
Direct property return
Direct property return as a percentage is equal to the net rental income of investment properties divided by the value of the investment properties including purchaser’s transaction costs, on a monthly basis (MSCI methodology).
Distributable result is the company only total rental income and other income net of all expenses, costs, fees (including management fee), financing costs and taxes borne by the Fund available for distribution to the shareholders.
Energy index of the portfolio
Average energy index on asset level, weighted by lettable floor area. Based on investment properties and excluded units without an energy index.
Estimated rental value
The estimated rent at which space within a property could reasonably be expected to be let given current market conditions.
Financial occupancy rate
This is the average occupancy rate of the portfolio over the year calculated on the basis of rental revenue according to contracts as at the reporting date, as a percentage of the theoretical rent.
Fund capital growth (INREV)
Fund capital growth is the total return (INREV), less the distributable result, divided by INREV NAV at the beginning of the period plus the time weighted (daily) contributions for the quarter minus the time weighted (daily) distributions/ redemptions for the quarter. Annual fund capital growth is calculated compounded on the basis of 4 quarters.
Fund income return (INREV)
The fund income return per period as a percentage is equal to the distributable result, divided by INREV NAV at the beginning of the period plus the time weighted (daily) contributions for the quarter minus the time weighted (daily) distributions/ redemptions for the quarter. Annual fund income return is calculated compounded on the basis of 4 quarters.
Fund total return (INREV)
The fund total return for the quarter is equal to the sum of the unrounded fund income return and fund capital growth. As a result rounding differences may occur. The annual fund total return is calculated compounded on the basis of the quarterly fund total return. As a result fund total return is not the sum of fund income return and fund capital growth.
Relative share of lettable floor area with energy label A, B and C compared to total lettable floor area of the portfolio. Based on investment properties and excluded listed buildings.
The GRESB (Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark) score is an overall measure of ESG performance – represented as a percentage of a 100 percent maximum. The score is a result of the annual assessment of the entity by GRESB.
GRESB star rating
The GRESB star rating is based on the GRESB Score and its quintile position relative to the GRESB universe, with annual calibration of the model. If an entity is placed in the top quintile, it will be a GRESB 5-star rated entity; if it ranks in the bottom quintile, it will be a GRESB 1-star rated entity, etc. As the GRESB star rating is calculated relative to the global performance of reporting entities, it shows exactly where the Fund stands on a global scale.
Gross Asset Value (GAV)
The total property portfolio plus the value of any further assets at market value as per the chosen valuation principles.
Gross initial yield (passing)
Passing rent divided by the gross capital value of the investment property including purchaser's transaction costs, as per end of period.
Gross initial yield (market)
Theoretical rent (market) divided by the gross capital value of the investment property including purchaser's transaction costs as per end of period.
Gross rental income
The gross rental income is the total contractual rental income over the reporting period from let properties reported under IFRS, including the net effects of straight-lining for lease incentives, including rent free periods.
Invested capital is defined as the net asset value of the funds, as per the chosen valuation principles of the funds, that Bouwinvest manages as investment manager.
Indirect property return
Indirect property return as a percentage is equal the increase/decrease in the value of a property or group of properties net of capital expenditure divided by the value of the investment properties including purchaser’s transaction costs, on a monthly basis (MSCI methodology).
INREV NAV is based on the fair value of the underlying assets and liabilities, as at the balance sheet date, and adjusted for the spreading of costs that will benefit different generations of investors.

Membership of industry associations
Number of employees active in board/committee memberships in industry organisations in the real estate sector in reporting period.
MSCI Netherlands Property Index
Benchmark organization IPD is rebranded to MSCI. Therefore we mention MSCI Netherlands Annual Property Index instead of IPD Netherlands Annual Property Index. The composition and calculation of the indexes and benchmarks remain the same: indirect property return as a percentage is equal to the increase/decrease in the value of a property or group of properties net of capital expenditure divided by the value of the investment properties including purchaser’s transaction costs, on a monthly basis.
Net asset value (NAV)
The net asset value is equal to the shareholders’ equity of the Fund.
Net initial yield
Net rental income divided by the gross capital value of the investment property including purchaser's transaction costs as per end of period.
Net rental income
Net rental income is gross rental income for the period less ground rents payable, service charge expenses and other non-recoverable property operating expenses such as insurance, real estate taxes, marketing and other vacant property costs.
On-site solar power
Amount of installed power (kilowatt peak - kWp) from on-site solar panels in the investment portfolio.
The annualised cash rental income being received as at a certain date, excluding the net effects of straight-lining for lease incentives. For the avoidance of doubt, where no rent is currently being paid due to operation of a rent-free period, the passing rent will be shown as zero.
Pay-out ratio of distributable earnings
This is the distributed dividend in the reporting period divided by the distributable result in the reporting period.
Reduction of energy consumption
Percentage of change in energy consumption (electricity and gas) at end of reporting year compared to previous year on a like-for-like basis for energy meters which were under the direct control of the Fund. Like-for-like refers to the energy consumption of a portfolio that has been consistently in operation for two comparative periods. Gas consumption is converted from m3 to kWh based on the conversion factor as published at end of period on https://www.co2emissiefactoren.nl. And gas consumption of the reporting year is corrected for differences in the number of degree days at De Bilt (the Netherlands) between the current and previous year.

Total Expense Ratio (TER)
The total expense ratio reflects the total Fund expenses of the current reporting period as a percentage of the weighted average Net Asset Value (NAV) over the period. The TER is backward looking and includes the management fee, administrative expenses and valuation fees.
Transactions are contractual obligations for the purchase of investment properties, where such property is not generating income for the benefit of the Fund as of the reporting date.
WALT (average remaining lease time)
Weighted average duration of lease contracts based on rent to the shorter of the first tenant break or lease expiry.
