Private Market - North America

AEW offers a range of investment strategies for investors seeking exposure to the private real estate markets in North America, Europe and Asia. All of our investment strategies are steeped in research and we consistently adhere to a disciplined and time-tested investment management process. For investors seeking exposure to the private real estate markets in North America, AEW offers core, value-added and opportunistic investment strategies.

Core

For clients with core objectives, AEW offers a core open-end fund as well as separately managed accounts. We source, close and manage investments in the primary property types (office, industrial, retail, multifamily) in all major U.S. metropolitan markets. Our core investment strategies seek to provide investors with an attractive total return, with an emphasis on steady generation of income. Core investment strategies are executed by the AEW Direct Investment Group, a dedicated team that includes acquisitions, portfolio management, asset management and accounting professionals who work exclusively on direct equity portfolios.

Value-Added

For clients with value-added investment objectives, AEW offers separately-managed accounts, the AEW Value Investors fund series and the AEW Senior Housing Investors fund series. On behalf of institutional clients, we source, close and manage investments in each of the primary property sectors, as well as in the hotel and senior housing sectors. Our value-added investment strategies seek to provide investors with an attractive total return, comprised of current cash distributions and appreciation potential through re-positioning and other active management strategies. Value-added investment strategies are executed by the AEW Direct Investment Group.

Opportunistic

AEW offers the AEW Partners Fund series for clients with opportunistic investment objectives. AEW was a pioneer in the development of opportunistic strategies for real estate investors, having launched our first such fund in 1988. The AEW Partners Funds seek to identify and capitalize on emerging investment opportunities and trends before they become fully appreciated by the broader market, and to execute investment strategies that capitalize on those opportunities. The AEW Partners Funds target attractive total returns. These portfolios are managed by a dedicated team of experienced acquisitions, investment management and finance professionals.
