Our investment philosophy

As a result, Schroder Real Estate Hotel’s portfolio is located across Europe’s winning cities and established tourist destinations benefitting from structural change.
As an active asset manager, the team aims to drive incremental value by optimising the hotel’s day-to-day operations as well as carrying out targeted asset management initiatives. These include refurbishments, upgrades, repositioning of space or creation of new facilities.

The Schroder Real Estate Hotels team is supported by the wider Schroder Private Assets platform with investment, asset management and operations teams across ten well-established locations in Europe. This helps provide the hotel team with improved local market knowledge, access to potential deals, closer implementation of asset business plans, and improved ability to manage and mitigate risk.
