Business Services

We own a diverse portfolio of service businesses operating across real estate, logistics, facilities management and financial services. Our facilities management business provides clients with a range of consulting, management and delivery services, currently overseeing more than 320 million square feet of real estate. Our road fuels distribution and marketing business is a leading supplier in the U.K. with a growing global footprint and we own one of the largest gas station networks in Canada, offering the Mobil fuel brand. Within our residential real estate business, we have franchise arrangements with a number of Canadian brokerage brands. Our financial advisory business is a global investment bank specializing in real assets, with offices in North America, South America, Europe, Asia and Australia.

Our international contractor, Multiplex, delivers end-to-end property and construction solutions across a broad range of sectors and has been creating landmark property and infrastructure assets for more than 55 years.


We purchased BGIS, a facilities management and real estate services firm, from Johnson Controls International in 2015. We have since expanded the business beyond its original markets of Canada and Australia, entering the U.S. market through an acquisition in 2016 and opening offices in Hong Kong and Singapore. BGIS manages over 320 million square feet of real estate.



We own and operate businesses whose market positions and capital intensity create high barriers to entry and require significant operational and management experience. Our manufacturing businesses are low-cost producers of materials such as graphite electrodes and building and construction products. When investing in this space, we focus on businesses where we see opportunities to make meaningful operational improvements. Our Metals & Mining operations, located in Canada, include one of only two primary palladium and platinum mines in North America, and a limestone aggregates business serving large oil sands customers. We own the largest private water and wastewater services company in Brazil serving 15 million people and operating through long term concessions and public-private partnerships.

Our energy businesses operate across the energy supply chain. In Western Canada, our E&P operations are oriented toward long-life, low-cost reserves located at shallow depths. We are a leading provider of critical transportation and production services to the offshore oil industry, providing services under medium to long-term, fixed-rate contracts. Our contract drilling and well servicing business, based in Western Canada, is positioned to meet the changing needs of our upstream customers within the drilling space.

  • brk-ambiental
    BRK Ambiental
    BRK Ambiental is the largest private water company in Brazil which we acquired in 2017 through a complex carve-out transaction. BRK operates water and sewage treatment systems and serves approximately 15 million people. The company has long-term concession contracts with municipalities and, over 25 to 35 years, will invest significant capital to improve and expand its networks. We expect BRK to generate stable, long term cash flows which will grow over time. Website
  • graftech
    GrafTech International
    GrafTech International is a leading manufacturer of a broad range of high quality graphite electrodes, products essential to the steel industry. This is a capital intensive business with significant barriers to entry and requires technical expertise to build and profitably operate. We acquired GrafTech in 2015 and are actively managing the business. We have improved the company’s underlying operating performance, and positioned it to be more competitive.


We have residential development operations in two principal markets; North America and Brazil. Our North American operations focus on entitling and developing land for building homes or for the sale of lots to other builders. We operate in 10 key markets across the region. Our Brazilian operations include land acquisition, development and construction for a broad range of “for sale” residential and commercial high-rise towers. Our operations are focused within Brazil’s largest markets including São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.
