Real Estate Multi-Manager
Since entering the industry in 1997, Aviva Investors¹ has become one of the largest global real estate multi-manager investors with more than $6 billion² invested through multi-manager strategies. We have invested worldwide and on behalf of leading corporations, public pension funds, and other institutional clients, building one of the longest track records in the industry. We seek superior risk-adjusted returns for our clients by creating broadly diversified and actively managed private real estate portfolios. We execute our strategy by selecting investment vehicles managed by third parties that we believe are best-suited to implement our strategy.
We invest on behalf of our clients in three areas:
For institutional clients of scale, we create segregated portfolios that are customized to each client's objectives by investing in a range of real estate ventures.
We seek to design portfolios with the core objective of consistently achieving superior risk-adjusted returns for our investors on a highly diversified basis.
We purchase private equity real estate interests from investors who are seeking liquidity by selling their interests in real estate ventures.
Our team is one of the largest dedicated real estate multi-manager groups in the industry with investment professionals based in New York, London and Singapore. We provide local market expertise and manage relationships throughout Asia, Europe, and the Americas. Our global investment committee, comprised of members from each region, assures consistency in the approach and execution of our strategy.
Our robust REMM Investment Process also incorporates our stewardship responsibilities – please click here to find out how we comply with the Stewardship Code (which is a set of principles and guidance published by the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) for institutional investors, representing current best practice on how they should perform their stewardship duties). At its simplest, stewardship is the responsibility to take care of something in one’s keeping. In this case, it involves the effort and activities undertaken by and on behalf of institutional shareholders to monitor, engage and intervene on matters that may affect the long term value of companies and the capital invested in them.
