Verco clients achieve impressive GRESB results!

The GRESB star rating is derived from the GRESB score and its position relative to all participants within the assessment, with 5 stars the highest rating. From the funds Verco submitted for clients, stars were obtained across 8 funds, of which 5 increased by 2 stars.

Verco supported clients across both the Standing Investment and Development benchmarks in 2022, with profound client improvements across both. Verco’s assessment advice and strategic targeting allowed clients to realise the full potential of improvements made throughout the course of the reporting period.
