Performance verification

As a global firm with tremendous breadth, we use a variety of benchmarks to evaluate our performance. These benchmarks include absolute returns, relative returns using non-real estate metrics, and a variety of third-party published real estate benchmarks, such as NCREIF, INREV, ANREV and MSCI/ IPD, for our private equity strategies. Additionally, for our public strategies we use the MSCI US REIT Index, FTSE EPRA/NAREIT Index series, and the FTSE Global Core Infrastructure index. Although this captures the main benchmarks, it is not a complete list, and we work with our clients to find appropriate ways to benchmark performance.
