Our goal is to generate stable and growing distributions for our investors while protecting them against downside risk. Our assets are diversified by sector and geography, reducing exposure to movement in any single market and minimizing volatility.
Real estate has evolved into a multi-faceted asset class spanning the public and private markets. Investors can choose between public and private real estate investment trusts (REITs), private real estate transactions, and private commercial real estate debt. Institutional and individual investors have historically benefited by investing in privately owned real estate, with benefits ranging from superior income returns, diversification, and strong overall risk-adjusted returns.
Owning private real estate means investing in individual properties or through a pooled investment vehicle available to individual investors but not listed on a stock exchange. Since it is not publicly traded, private real estate is not subject to the stock market volatility responsible for much of the fluctuation in share prices of publicly owned real estate. In addition, private real estate investments usually do not provide liquidity in the same manner as public real estate, leading investors to expect higher returns or what’s also known as an “illiquidity premium”. Lastly, real estate not only has a low correlation with equities but is often viewed as a hedge against inflation.

Infrastructure assets lay the foundation for essential goods and services, comprising the energy, power, transport, water and utilities sectors. Portfolio allocations to infrastructure have grown significantly in recent years, and this trend is expected to accelerate in the coming years as the benefits of investing in infrastructure assets are increasingly recognized. There is a significant need for new infrastructure in both developed and developing economies, and the need for private capital to replace aging infrastructure or fund new projects will continue to persist. This asset class offers long-term, stable and predictable cash flows in mission critical industries.
