The Global Real Estate Transparency Index is based on a combination of quantitative market data and survey results across 99 countries and territories. 210 individual measures are divided into 14 topic areas, which are then grouped and weighted into six broad sub-indices:​​​​

  • Market Fundamentals 16.5%
  • Governance of Listed Vehicles 10%
  • Regulatory and Legal 23.5%
  • Transaction Process 15%
