GLOBAL REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT STRATEGY
QuadReal is currently invested in over 25 Global Cities, including Canada. Our success can be attributed to our collaboration with a diverse range of strategic investment and development partners. What drives where we invest and with whom is a deeply researched, forward-looking global investment strategy. It culminates in our areas of conviction. These include logistics and industrial, data centres, residential, student housing, health care and life sciences.
The universe of investment opportunities is theoretically endless. Focusing on research-based areas of conviction is how to invest precious resources wisely. It also improves the probability of results that will deliver across economic cycles and other shocks. As a team, we are united in being forward-looking as we benefit from the deep experience of colleagues with a myriad of considered perspectives.
As we expand in Canada, the U.S., Europe and Asia Pacific, we look to the experience and diligence of our team and that of our partners to help us unlock opportunities by sharing knowledge and value-creation expertise.
To our partners, QuadReal commits to bringing the strength of an experienced global real estate investment and management team. We also have transparent, clearly defined approval processes that enable us to be nimble and act quickly when an opportunity arises.
