Real Estate Survey 2015: Methodology
Euromoney magazine’s 11th annual Real Estate Survey canvassed the opinions of real estate advisers, developers, investment managers, corporate end-users and banks worldwide. We asked respondents which firms they thought were the best providers of real estate products and services in their market over the past 12 months. The survey was filled in at country level by senior executives and had two distinct components:
Part 1 (Nominations) and Part 2 (Market feedback). In a change from the past, the survey results this year were based only on the peer nominations and voter participation scores (no quantitative data was analyzed).
In Part 1 of the survey we asked respondents to nominate the companies which they thought were best, second and third in each category in their country. We awarded four, three and two points respectively to each of those nominations in that category and country. We also awarded a small number of participation points to the respondent's own firm for nominations they provided for their peers. We asked every respondent to provide their individual opinions rather than those of their company.
The Overall category results were produced by aggregating the nominations points received and the participation points awarded for nominating peers. The sub-category results are based only on nominations points. Global and regional results are weighted aggregates of country results.
In Part 2 of the survey we asked respondents to provide their views on the latest developments in the market. The responses to these questions were only of editorial interest and were not scored for the rankings.
The full survey results are published at: www.euromoney.com and headline results are published in the September issue of Euromoney magazine.
The 2015 survey was conducted from March 24th until June 1st 2015 and we received 1754 valid responses representing a 10.6% increase on the 1586 responses received in 2014.
