Armstrong has been chief executive since 1998 and is credited with radical reform of the RICS, particularly internationalising the professional body, which now operates in 140 counties.

The RICS Governing Council will decide who replaces him.

Max Crofts, RICS president, said: “Louis has played a leading role in building RICS as the mark of property professionalism worldwide and has done an immense amount to raise our profile and influence around the world. I hope that Louis will continue to be actively involved in the world of property following his retirement."
