Tasks performed by third parties on behalf of Altera
The daily management of the assets is carried out by specialized external real estate managers. This allows us to focus on adding value by means of portfolio and asset management. We also maintain contact with the tenants in question on a regular basis, for commercial activities on the one hand, and so that we can respond to their needs and wishes on the other hand. The external real estate managers are directed by Portfolio Management.
All assets are subjected to quarterly appraisals by external appraisers. We only make use of professional, certified parties and ensure that assets are rotated amongst the appointed appraisers every 3 years. The appraisal process is directed by the financial branch, headed by the CFO, where a deliberate distinction has been made between the various disciplines involved.
Other external professional parties perform specific tasks in consultation with us and on behalf of us, such as acquisitions, dispositions, rental activities and customer satisfaction surveys.
