A global leader in alternative asset management
We are invested in long-life, high-quality assets and businesses that form the backbone of today's global economy.
Our approach to investing stems from our heritage as an owner and operator, investing our own capital to develop and operate the assets and businesses we acquire.
Today we build on that expertise in sectors where our operating experience gives us a competitive advantage. Experience has also taught us that the best opportunities are often found in regions or sectors undergoing periods of financial or operational challenge. We utilize our global team of approximately 1,000 investment professionals, our vast network of approximately 150,000 operating employees, and our industry partners to identify and acquire high-quality assets and businesses at favorable valuations and finance them on a long-term, low-risk basis.
To ensure that our interests are aligned with our investors’, we put our own capital to work alongside theirs in nearly every deal we do, bringing the strengths of our global reach, large-scale capital and operating expertise to bear on all our investments.
With a presence in more than 30 countries, the scale of our global operations means that we have significant access to proprietary deal flow.
2,000 assets across 30 countries on 5 continents
Our ready access to significant capital and the size of our balance sheet allow us to pursue transactions few others are able to consider.
We started as owners and operators of real assets, and as our business has evolved, we continue to use our operational expertise to enhance cash flows, increase the value of our underlying assets and produce solid long-term returns for our investors.
