We finance bespoke structured finance and senior private corporate debt transactions, seeking to meet a range of client outcomes.
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.
Key risks of real asset investments
Real estate risk
Where funds are invested in real estate / infrastructure and illiquid private assets, you may not be able to switch or cash in your investment when you want because real estate in the fund may not always be readily saleable. If this is the case we may defer your request to switch or cash in your units.
