Real estate at Aviva Investors

Our global presence and diverse range of investment strategies allow us to serve a variety of client needs. Whether investors are seeking to match liabilities, receive a steady and predictable income, protect their investment from inflation or achieve capital growth, we aim to provide a suitable real estate solution. These solutions reflect our clients’ risk tolerances, liquidity preferences and return ambitions.

Our investment process begins with a thorough understanding of the macroeconomic environment. We draw on the insights of our strategy and research capabilities across all asset classes, in multiple locations. This ability to look beyond real estate helps us fully appreciate how it may be impacted by world events and activities in other sectors, giving us a comprehensive view of our investment landscape.

Deep knowledge of the markets in which we operate, enhanced by locally based expertise, has allowed us to successfully develop a wide range of real estate investments. We offer direct and indirect strategies (including both listed and unlisted). Some focus on specific sectors in particular countries, while others invest in opportunities across the real estate market and on a global basis. Rigorous asset selection and due diligence is carried out by teams based in the local market to ensure we fully understand the quality and potential of each asset.

Scale and presence give us privileged access to opportunities through off-market deals. And once we have invested, we can call upon the expertise and skills of our asset managers to help in enhancing the value of these investments. Our team has an excellent track record in redevelopment, repositioning and transforming assets. This not only drives returns for our clients, but also creates improved living, working and leisure spaces, benefiting the communities in the areas in which we invest.

By seeking and exploiting value, wherever it can be found, we are well positioned to focus on delivering attractive risk-adjusted returns for our clients.
