Our commitment to research and its practical application to decision-making is critical to the success of every investment portfolio we manage. The best research is irrelevant unless the analysis it produces is used in day-to-day decision-making. To help make this critical link, AEW Research has developed several proprietary research tools that translate economic analyses into the kind of insight necessary to maximize investment performance. The work of AEW Research is systematically integrated into each phase of our investment management process, including:
|Target market selection|
|Underwriting of proposed acquisitions|
|Development of effective leasing and marketing strategies|
|Timing and pricing of sale transactions|
Michael Acton, Director of AEW Research in North America, oversees seven research professionals - urban economists whose efforts are focused on identifying and understanding the key economic and top-down influences on underlying property fundamentals and outlining the current local economic trends. AEW’s integrated research team provides a top-down view to give us a complete investment perspective.
