Industries & Sectors


According to our recently published study, 28% of all investment transactions in 2018 were in specialist sectors – an all-time high. Led by experienced experts, our specialist sectors teams advise developers and occupiers in these highly specialized markets.

How we can help:

We assist investors, occupiers and developers throughout the world. Our approach is built on three key pillars:

  • Insight-driven advice: Our advice is based on data and insights that we’ve obtained from our own studies and research reports. We combine our data-driven analyses of real estate with an in-depth understanding of the trends and themes of this sector.
  • An understanding of operators: Investing in specialist sectors and operational real estate requires an in-depth understanding of operating models. Our teams are made up of advisors who have a good understanding of how these services operate and what their specific challenges are.
  • International experience of the capital markets: Our experience of managing global capital flows has given us a first-hand view of the diversities and challenges of every market, as well as a global network of clients and advisors.
