We seek to deliver sustainable value to society by investing our clients’ capital in real assets through our investment funds and by actively managing these assets. Delivering sustainable value means we invest in quality rather than quantity, aim at sustainable results rather than short-term profit, and operate transparently and to society’s benefit in both good times and bad. We want to be the respected investor and manager of institutional and private capital and we are keenly aware that our clients’ trust in us depends on our conduct and decision making.
