Disciplined investment approach
Our investment process is the product of our Focus on Change philosophy – a philosophy that helps us anticipate shifts in the price of an investment or movements in markets before the competition. This is a key facet of our approach to making money for your clients across all asset classes, including real estate.
The performance record of our real estate funds over time is testament to an investment process that has delivered good results over the longer term.
How we invest
Our approach to investing in real estate is rigorous and dispassionate. When it comes to examining real estate opportunities, we aim to exploit inefficiencies and mispricing in the market to enhance the value of your investment. Three key elements to our investment process are research, stock selection and active management.
Our real estate research team offers skills and experience that have been built over a long period of time. We strongly believe in our ability to deliver value through a wholly transparent, rigorous and repeatable process designed to identify which markets and sectors offer relative appeal. The team provides original in-house research and is instrumental in setting our House View for real estate.
We look to source and acquire the most attractive investment opportunities. Having identified potential opportunities, we scrutinise each one closely against a range of rigorous measures. Our investment process is designed to seek superior performance for our clients.
We carefully monitor each investment on an ongoing basis and aim to add value throughout the tenure of our investment – from choosing individual properties to asset management and development.
