Financial and non-financial information
The financial information included in this report is derived from or in line with the financial statements. The Vesteda annual report is drawn up in accordance with IFRS accounting policies, unless otherwise stated. However, for transparency purposes, Vesteda deems it important to provide investors with insight into the fund’s net asset value and metrics on the basis of the INREV principles, which is included in the ‘Vesteda Residential Fund FGR financial overviews in accordance with INREV valuation principles’ section of this report. The non-financial information relates to areas such as market developments, portfolio and organisational developments, tenants, sustainability, corporate governance, compliance and integrity, and risk management. These data are the result of Vesteda’s own analyses and systems, market research and legislation and regulations. There are no significant restatements regarding non-financial information.
This report has been prepared in accordance with GRI Universal Standards. A key requirement for conforming with GRI guidelines is the execution of a materiality analysis and the translation of the outcomes of this in the annual reporting. Vesteda executed a materiality analysis in 2020, resulting in a list of 12 topics, eight of which are considered material topics by its stakeholders.
All Vesteda’s entities are within scope for all material topics and their indicators. Vesteda reports quantitatively on the eight most material topics. Whenever possible, these topics have been combined with and linked to (GRI) aspects included in the previous year’s reporting. The results of the materiality analysis are shown in the following matrix. The GRI table in Annex 5 of this report shows the link between the material topics and the GRI aspects and indicators.
