Meet the team

The Global Cities Team created this resource to share their latest views on the investment trends impacting our global cities. 


Tom and Hugo have led the approach to Global Cities at Schroders. They’ve worked in real estate investing for over 17 years and their approach is based on a simple premise: planned urbanisation has the potential to protect and enhance investor returns. By investing in the tradeable shares of property companies, they can access some of the most economically vibrant cities across the world.

The best cities have similar characteristics – diverse economies, zoning regulation, strong universities and developed infrastructure. These ingredients allow select cities to maintain their competitiveness making them well placed for long-term real estate investment.


Please note that investments of this nature come with risk. Capital is at risk and the value of investments can fall as well as rise. If past performance is shown, it should not be used as an indicator of future results
