Investment Philosophy

Barings’ investment philosophy emphasizes strong governance and transparency as we aim to uncover relative value through proprietary research and local market presence.  Our approach allows us to secure opportunities projected to generate superior risk-adjusted returns appropriate to our clients’ needs. We seek to invest capital prudently in private real estate equity, relying on cycle-tested investment and portfolio management experience to guide our decisions. We add value by actively managing portfolios through an integrated team of portfolio management, research, asset management, acquisition and finance specialists, with Investment Committee oversight. We also employ a prudent, pragmatic risk management process.

Our Value Add

  • Deep experience: We have over 25 years of experience investing in private real estate equity across all major property types—including multi-family, industrial/logistics, office, retail, hotel, and niche asset classes—and over multiple market cycles.
  • Proprietary research: Our research-driven investment process combines fundamental analysis and local market insights from our regional offices with views from our multidisciplinary research and strategy teams.
  • Integrated business platform: Our in-house equity investment team leverages the firm’s global expertise across private/public debt and equity markets.
  • Information advantage: Our regional offices are located in key markets, giving us local knowledge that translates to an information advantage in deal sourcing, underwriting, asset management and dispositions.
  • Development expertise: Our extensive experience in development gives us access to unique investment opportunities, and informs investment decisions for all of our assets.
  • Sustainable Approach: Barings takes ESG into consideration at each stage of investment, and focuses on the long-term impact of every decision that we make, creating investments that are sustainable over time.
