Data used by valuers and investors can differ by up to 40%, says Dean Grossmith, a director of software firm Affinity. This should be critical to other innovations such as property derivatives and statements in annual accounts about relative performance compared with indices. 'It has the feel of a corporate governance disaster waiting to happen,' he says.
