Scores rose slightly on average to 88.9 points (the maximum is 100), with six portfolios achieving 90 points or more. German fund NINE, which debuted in the GRESB last year, showed the biggest improvement with a 6.6 per cent jump.
The average score of all participating funds globally in the GRESB benchmark rose slightly from 73 to 74 points. As in previous years, all Syntrus Achmea funds and portfolios scored well above this average.

"As many as seven top rankings with a maximum rating of five stars, with the healthcare real estate fund singled out as the best in the world. We don't just talk about sustainability; we also show that we act on it together with our clients."
