This combination allows us to build strategies for our clients across the spectrum of Real Assets through a wide range of investment solutions which aim to deliver targeted returns commensurate with their risk profile. We are the number one portfolio and asset manager in Europe² in direct property and a global leader in Real Asset investment.
Our size, experience and structure enable us to offer clients a 360° view of real assets investing - we invest in equity, debt and infrastructure, across different real asset classes, geographies and via private and listed instruments.
This 360° view provides us with a thorough understanding of relative value in real asset markets that can be instrumental to optimising the management of economic cycles. It also promotes flexibility and agility in our investment decisions.
