As a leading real assets investment management firm, we strive to realize potential in investments and people in innovative ways, every day. We do so by creating the sustainable investment solutions of tomorrow so our clients, people and communities thrive.

Our focus on delivering results is driven by our values, entrepreneurial spirit and our clients’ diverse needs. Together, our team specializes in holistic real assets solutions within and across five real assets investment categories, with a distinct approach to driving performance and long-term value.

Multi-Dimensional Approach

Investor-Operator Capabilities

Our unique ability to see investment management through the eyes of real estate and infrastructure investors and users means we have the expertise to deliver on all aspects of an investment’s lifecycle. Our capability and flexibility to work with leading service providers means we understand everything from designing portfolio strategies, investing capital and operating assets (build, lease, manage, repurpose) to optimizing the occupier experience and ultimately disposing of assets to realize returns. This end-to-end integration allows us to align clients’ investment objectives with users’ needs and preferences, across portfolios and sector specialties.
