Philosophy & Process

CBRE Investment Management’s approach to global real assets is based on the belief that an allocation to both listed and unlisted investments may provide attractive income and growth, as well as lower volatility and correlation to broader equity markets. The approach combines access to institutional-quality unlisted real estate and infrastructure assets with listed securities, which provides the potential for enhanced total return, flexibility, transparency and liquidity.

CBRE Investment Management maintains three key strategic pillars in its investment philosophy:

  1. Fundamentally driven: Conducting in-depth fundamental research to identify market inefficiencies and develop top-down house views to identify preferred strategies within markets and sectors.
  2. Integrated markets: Real estate and infrastructure have significant representation in listed and unlisted markets. Active managers with a deep understanding of both markets have an informational advantage.
  3. Disciplined process: Consistent outperformance requires a combination of superior information, rigorous fundamental research, and a disciplined approach to risk management and portfolio construction.

Investment Funds

*Assets under management (AUM) refers to the fair market value of real assets-related investments with respect to which CBRE Investment Management provides, on a global basis, oversight, investment management services and other advice and which generally consist of investments in real assets; equity in funds and joint ventures; securities portfolios; operating companies and real assets-related loans. This AUM is intended principally to reflect the extent of CBRE Investment Management’s presence in the global real assets market, and its calculation of AUM may differ from the calculations of other asset managers and from its calculation of regulatory assets under management for purposes of certain regulatory filings.
