Asset Sectors

SPECIALIST SECTORS

According to our own recently published research report [link], 28% of all investment transactions in 2018 were in Specialist Sectors – an all-time high.

Our Specialist Sectors teams led by relevant experts help investors, help developers and occupiers in these specialist markets.

How we can help:

We support investors, occupiers and developers across the globe. Our approach is built around three key pillars:

  • Insight-driven advice: We build our advice on data and insights that we’ve established from our own research and reporting [link]. We combine data-driven analysis of real estate with a deep understanding of macro trends and themes.
  • Operator understanding: Investing in Specialist Sectors and operational real estate requires a deep understanding of operating models. Our teams are packed with advisors who understand how these services operate, and what their specific challenges are.
  • International capital experience: Our experience of managing global capital flows has given us a first-hand view of the nuances and challenges of every marketplace – as well as a global network of clients and advisors.
