AEW takes a disciplined and time-tested approach to investing. This approach is reflected in our investment committee which provides valuable counsel for decision-making at AEW. The breadth and depth of experience on this committee gives each of our clients the benefit of our best thinking and collective perspective on real estate and capital market opportunities.
The AEW Asia Investment Committee is responsible for reviewing and approving every private market real estate investment made on behalf of our clients. In general, the Investment Committee meets at least twice to review each new acquisition. The preliminary meeting is the forum in which new investments are introduced and receive initial guidance and feedback from the committee. Final underwriting and due diligence conclusions, as well as approval to acquire an asset are secured at Final Investment Committee. The Committee's unanimous approval is required for the execution of any transaction.
