DCF method
Abbreviation of discounted cash flow method. For IVG this is a key instrument in measuring the fair value of the property portfolio. This valuation method is based on net present values and discounts expected future cash flows from a property to the valuation date. Over a period of ten years the annual surplus (net operating income) is estimated for each property and discounted. It is assumed that the property will be sold at the end of the period and the assumed purchase price will be determined by a perpetuity.
