Our approach

We focus on targeted locations and sectors, developing a deep knowledge of local markets, building strong relationships with key players and gaining an unparalleled access to selected real estate opportunities.

Our team’s technical expertise combined with strong (but non-binding) environmental, social and governance (ESG) integration, allows us to create value for investors in European real estate. We have a proven advantage in market access, and in our ability to deploy capital quickly and efficiently.

Benefits

Diversification

A range of investment opportunities spanning the full risk spectrum.

Illiquidity premium

The private nature of the assets and networks needed to access them typically command an illiquidity premium.

Liability-matching

Predictable long-term cash flows to match long-dated liabilities.

Key risks

Investment risk

The value of an investment and any income from it can go down as well as up and can fluctuate in response to changes in currency and exchange rates. Investors may not get back the original amount invested.

Real estate risk

Investments in real estate may not be able to be sold, realised or liquidated when you want because real estate assets may not always be readily saleable. If this is the case, we may defer your request or instruction regarding your investment. Investors should also bear in mind that the valuation of real estate is generally a matter of valuers’ opinion rather than fact.

Sustainable real assets in the spotlight

Just when we thought things were returning to normal after the social, economic and market upheaval caused by the pandemic, the events of 2022 presented new challenges for investors. It was in that context in late 2022 that we took the pulse of key investment decision makers at 500 institutional investors representing a combined $3.5 trillion of assets on their appetite for real assets, including those with a sustainable focus. Read the results in our Real Assets Study 2023.
