DiversificationWe invest in high quality assets that are diversified by geography, sector, tenants, and local economic factors to mitigate concentration risk.
ResearchDecisions are underpinned by in-depth analysis.
Long-term performanceWe focus on a long-term strategic plan to maintain and create sustainable income growth and value.
Environment, Social and Governance (ESG)Asset analysis embedded in the investment process considers various ESG factors relevant to real estate assets.
Understanding riskWe tap into our deep market insight to appropriately price and incorporate risk into every asset decision in a portfolio.
The investment process is driven by both top down and bottom up analysis and reinforced by constant monitoring of our existing assets.
Our portfolios are constructed based on a well-diversified mix of asset type and geography with long-term target weightings based on expected risk-adjusted return analysis. Market research is conducted on an ongoing basis to support informed portfolio decisions within the target ranges.
Each asset held within our portfolios or considered for new investment undergoes rigorous analysis to ensure that only high quality properties that are consistent with our portfolios targets are included in our portfolios.
Each asset held within our portfolios is individually monitored in all aspects of its performance and then collectively the portfolio results as a whole are similarly monitored.
Taken together, these qualities may make core real estate an attractive opportunity worthy of consideration in prudently diversified portfolios.
