Investment principles & strategy
CBRE Global Investors aims to deliver superior performance across our range of client solutions by applying our knowledge advantage through a disciplined investment process. Our Investment Philosophy guides all our strategies and is founded on the following principles:
Risk must be understood before it can be managed:
We formulate a rigorous risk framework for each mandate and then carefully construct portfolios that will meet our clients’ risk/return requirements.
Market conditions change:
By combining a global view of capital markets with an in-depth insight into local asset fundamentals, we invest in the markets and strategies that offer the best relative value at different stages of the cycle.
Every asset is unique:
We utilise our local information networks to understand the drivers and risks of the future cash flow of an asset, enabling us to see opportunity where others do not, and to be a disciplined seller.
Asset management creates value:
A deeper understanding of occupier requirements enables us to maximise each asset’s potential through innovative and sustainable management.
Consistency counts over the long run:
A superior investment track record is built through consistent outperformance across cycles.
