Real Estate Investing

We are a global leader in direct private real estate investing, managing millions of assets on behalf of an internationally diverse set of institutional investors.

 

Through a series of regional and global programs, clients can access core to enhanced investment opportunities through separate accounts and commingled strategies.

 

With offices globally and a team of more than 550 independent professionals, in our experience, we are able to combine our proprietary research with unique market intelligence to identify potential investments across a range of real estate sectors.

Investment approach

 

We invest in real estate based on a relative value analysis that looks at global sectors and regions from a top down perspective and identifies investment opportunities in specific regions and sub-segments. Our local investment teams then work to identify investment opportunities within those specific market segments.

 

In global real estate markets, our investment strategy is focused around three key themes:

 

Buying below replacement cost
We target assets with low valuations located in rebounding markets that can be repositioned and then leased-up by under-cutting market rents. These opportunities typically arise as a result of ineffective management, inadequate leasing or physical deficiencies – all issues that we can address.

 

“Buy, fix, sell”
This approach typically targets older buildings in great locations that are in need of owner-oriented asset management initiatives including capital expenditure, repositioning, lease-up and the implementation of building efficiencies to capture rental and pricing differentials.

 

Develop core
The rapid transformations taking place in many major cities across the globe offer plentiful opportunities to execute a “develop core” strategy. We focus on building ground-up assets that meet end-user demand and appeal to core investors.
