Directly invested funds
We manage a broad range of open and closed ended real estate funds, offering investors exposure to both diversified and sector focused portfolios, and differing risk and return profiles. Investors can choose between single country funds and regional funds.

Our real estate capital partners team have managed separate accounts and pooled funds since 1997. Today we manage £3.2 billion (€4.1 / US$5.0) in this style (at 31 December 2014, AUM includes cross holdings in certain Schroder managed real estate funds).
Real estate securities
Real estate securities provide exposure to global real estate through liquid investment securities. Our real estate securities team have managed separate accounts and pooled funds since 2005. Today we manage £1.6 (€2.0 / US$2.0) billion in this style (at 31 December 2014).
* Real Estate AUM includes holdings of Schroder Real Estate Capital Partners and Schroders Multi-Asset Funds.
Our real estate team operates from six offices across Europe. The team is highly experienced in real estate fund management, research and strategy, product and client management, finance and administration, and benefits from the significant resources of the Schroder Group.
Schroders operates a matched bargain service for eligible investors on all of its funds. Our efficient dealing service provides price transparency and potentially enhanced liquidity.
Our real estate investment philosophy is based on our belief that the real estate market is imperfect and moves cyclically. We believe that value can be found through detailed research and analysis of the real estate market and of selected investment opportunities. This provides us with the opportunity to outperform the market. We also believe that the level of risk within a portfolio should be commensurate with its investment objectives.

With the exception of Schroder Global Property Securities Fund, Schroder International Selection Fund Global Property Securities and Schroder Global Property Income Maximiser, and Schroder UK Property Fund, all of the property funds referred to in these pages ("Funds") are collective investment schemes within the meaning of Section 235 of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 ("FSMA").
