With a heritage spanning more than 50 years in Europe, DWS has built a leading full-service, global real estate investment business with more than 400 professionals and staff located in 25 cities around the world. We offer a diverse range of strategies across the risk/return and geographic spectrums, including core and value-added real estate, real estate debt, real estate securities and opportunistic real estate. As fiduciaries of our clients’ capital, we seek to create innovative investment solutions designed to meet specific client requirements, combined with a disciplined approach to real estate investing.

The depth of insights from our integrated top-down and bottom-up approach gives us unique perspective into markets and allows us to develop actionable strategies for our clients’ portfolios.

Our approach starts with global and regional research teams and on-the-ground investment and asset management teams to provide our clients proprietary perspectives on market opportunities, trends and risks. We combine this intelligence with our sophisticated portfolio construction approach and advanced risk management with the goal to deliver optimal returns for public pension plans, corporations, insurance companies, endowments, foundations, sovereign wealth funds, retirement plans and private clients worldwide.

Our size, reputation and longstanding relationships often give us access to investment opportunities before they are broadly mar­keted. Seasoned local teams and a hands-on approach translate into more efficient investment decisions, potentially increasing property income returns and adding long-term value.
