Our approach

We leverage our integrated real asset platform to design multi-asset solutions that meet a wide variety of our clients’ long-term investment and return objectives. By drawing on the expertise of our teams across real estate, infrastructure, and structured and private debt we source unique deal opportunities and deliver efficient deployment of capital.

Through our scale and experience, we have deep, direct market access and high visibility of off-market deals. Being able to rely on a team of 340 highly-skilled professionals gives us unparalleled access to mainstream and niche sectors, and the ability to manage the complexity of real assets – and their risks – with the aim of delivering robust risk-adjusted returns.

We also embed environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations throughout the investment process, from origination through to due diligence and approvals to development, management and reporting. These are, however, non-binding.


Investors can access the benefits delivered by each real asset type in their portfolio, with a bespoke design and construction to meet their requirements.

Client-specific outcomes

Our scale and expertise allow us to source unique deal opportunities across a broad range of real assets, through debt, equity and direct ownership and our knowledge helps us build portfolios with outcomes that will meet specific client demands.

Efficient deployment

We target rapid deal execution and have a robust and sustainable pipeline, with a high success rate of deals.

Co-investment with Aviva

Our co-investment model ensures alignment of interests, disciplined underwriting, and encourages a long-term responsible investment mentality.

Key risks

Investment risk

The value of an investment and any income from it can go down as well as up. Investors may not get back the original amount invested.

Valuation risk

Where funds are invested in real estate / infrastructure, investors may not be able to switch or cash in an investment when they want because real estate / infrastructure may not always be readily saleable. If this is the case, we may defer a request to switch or cash in shares or units. Investors should also bear in mind that the valuation of real estate is generally a matter of valuers’ opinion rather than fact.
