Our Investment Approach
We have developed a “full stack” approach to real estate investing that covers the full life cycle of every investment. Every investment involves the whole team right from the outset and every decision is informed by our collective knowledge of:
- Research and investment strategy
- Real estate and capital markets
- Investment analysis and transaction execution
- Development and asset management
- Operating platform creation, management and operations
- Technology and data management
This approach allows us to stay at the forefront of change, drive positive, sustainable changes to the way people interact with the built environment, and elevate experiences to make the places we create more valuable to everyone.
We use our best-in-class research, deep property investment experience, local market knowledge and operational know-how to develop an in-house view on long-term global trends. These trends are used to identify prevailing headwinds and tailwinds across sectors and the global investment landscape to develop high-conviction investment strategies and to identify opportunities to create operating platforms where we see gaps in the market and the potential for significant investment and value creation.
Our in-house specialists are directly involved at every stage of the investment life cycle in a “full stack” approach that covers everything from sourcing and underwriting, to fund and portfolio management, to development and asset management, and to on-site operations. Our integrated model leverages our development and asset management knowledge to outperform our targets and align our incentives with our investors, sustainability objectives and local communities.
Our purpose-built platforms provide us with the opportunity to be innovative in our portfolio management, achieving sustainable competitive advantages by filling an unmet market need, improving the end-user experience by offering a high-quality service and fostering a strong sense of community. Because our operating platforms are developed and managed in-house, it means we can maintain control, minimise risk and maximise quality for the end user.
