Our Approach

Leveraging the Brookfield Ecosystem

We invest in asset classes that help form the backbone of the global economy. Our businesses across these asset classes create a global network that is the Brookfield Ecosystem. It provides us with insights about how the world is changing, and we use it in guiding our investment decisions, while adding value to our assets and businesses over the long term. 

Gathering Operational Intelligence

Our operations in strategic locations around the world provide us with data and insights into trends and changes in the market.

Turning Insights into Action

We leverage this intelligence to source, execute, manage and realize investments for the benefit of our clients and partners.

Connecting with Confidence

The Brookfield Ecosystem drives competitive advantages in sourcing, executing, managing, and realizing investments.

Creating and Compounding Value

Our long-term investment success comes from buying, building and holding great businesses for long periods of time.

Focusing on Quality

We acquire high-quality assets and businesses that can provide strong downside protection across market cycles.

Being Patient and Ready

We take a long-term view in deploying capital while acting decisively when the right opportunities emerge.

Taking a Contrarian View

We see opportunities in assets, businesses, markets and sectors that are out of favor or in distress.

Sustainability at Our Core

We are more than simply an investor—we are active participants in industries and economies around the world. And we are committed to sustainability in everything we do.

“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.
