Investing on a Value Basis

We seek to deliver attractive long-term returns and provide strong downside protection for our investors—including pension plans, endowments, foundations, sovereign wealth funds, financial institutions, insurance companies and the private wealth channel.

We are disciplined in our focus on high-quality assets and businesses that we believe can deliver strong performance over the long term.

Access to Large Scale Capital

Our ready access to significant capital and the size of our balance sheet allows us to pursue transactions few others are able to consider.

A Patient Approach

We are patient in deploying capital but ready to invest decisively when the right opportunities emerge.

Contrarian View

We recognize that generating attractive returns often requires focusing on assets, businesses, markets and sectors that are out of favor or experiencing periods of distress. 

Sustainability at Our Core

We are more than simply an investor—we are active participants in industries and economies around the world, and committed to the long-term health of these local markets.

“Sustainability is in the fabric of our DNA. It is fundamental to our business and how we create value.”

Bruce Flatt, CEO
Operational

Operational sustainability is about understanding a company’s potential and enabling it to sustain itself over the long term. We have successfully operated assets and businesses through multiple market cycles, building exceptional in-house market knowledge, relationships and execution capabilities across sectors and regions. 

Financial

Financial sustainability involves implementing responsible capital and governance structures that support businesses for the long term. The concept starts with Brookfield and extends to our businesses and assets, and to our partnerships with investors. 

Environmental

We invest for environmental sustainability by owning assets that have a positive impact on the environment and can generate more consistent returns through multiple cycles. We also strive to minimize the environmental impact of our operations and improve our efficient use of resources over time.
