Real estate investing presents tremendous opportunity to diversify returns and cash flow generation with relatively low correlation to traditional investments. We give investors access to the entire equity spectrum including core, value-added and opportunistic real estate and real estate debt.

Deep insights gained by an integrated, research-driven approach – along with a comprehensive view from portfolio, asset management and transactions professionals – creates our holistic perspective. Our size, reputation and longstanding relationships give us access to investment opportunities before they are broadly marketed. Seasoned local teams and a hands-on approach translate into more efficient investment decisions, potentially increasing property income returns and adding long-term value.

With a platform and approach to real estate investing developed over 45 years, we are ranked among the world's largest real estate managers in several industry surveys.[1]
