Standard Life Investments

Real estate investment capabilities

Experts in Property Investment

Our history in the property market goes back over 50 years. In that time we have gathered a wealth of experience as well as global scale. As a result, we are now one of the 20 largest managers of real estate pension assets in the world*. In total we currently manage property assets worth £16.3 billion**. Our real estate investment teams in six offices across the world help us understand local markets and allow us to access to some of the best investment opportunities globally.

The scale of our business means we can offer a wide range of property funds. For example, investors can choose between funds that comprise direct (bricks and mortar), listed (companies quoted on stock exchanges) and hybrid (combination of both) property portfolios.

We work hard to enhance the performance of each of our property funds. For instance, with our direct investments, we continually appraise and actively manage each property. We do this through a team of over 150 highly dedicated commercial property specialists.
