Our philosophy is centred on consistent principles, to invest in strong fundamentals and to actively manage real estate portfolios. Our research-led approach identifies themes and trends informing our strategies to invest in locations and assets best suited to long-term real estate investment. As a result, our portfolios are located in ‘Winning Cities’ and regions best suited to benefit from these trends. We are an active manager of real estate, each asset has an individual business plan and is actively managed throughout its life to generate the optimum return for our investors.
We understand the importance and benefits of a sustainable approach to real estate investment. Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) is central to our investment approach and is integrated into the investment decision-making processes and business plans for all our investments.
