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.

Focus on Quality

We are disciplined in acquiring high-quality assets and businesses that we believe can provide strong downside protection across market cycles.

Patient Approach

We take a long-term view in deploying capital but are ready to act decisively when the right opportunities emerge.

Contrarian View

We recognize that generating attractive returns often requires seeking out 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

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


We implement 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. 


We are committed to managing our investments to be consistent with the transition to a net-zero economy by 2050. And throughout our operations, we strive to minimize our environmental impact and improve our efficient use of resources over time.
