Why Cambridge Associates?
We’re a recognized leader in real assets
We were honored to receive the gold-level Investment Consultancy of the Year Real Estate Global Award by the Investment & Pensions Europe (IPE) in 2020 and 2021. We appreciate the recognition for our work building custom and strategic real assets programs for our clients. These programs target above-market returns over the long term.
Also benefiting from our robust manager networks and long-standing relationships in the industry, our proprietary private real estate, natural resources, and infrastructure indexes are considered industry-standard benchmarks.
Deep networks to find best-in-class ideas
Our deep expertise and long-term commitment to real assets investing means we’re able to identify new and emerging managers early in their life cycle. We stay ahead of spinouts from managers we’ve followed.
During our robust due diligence process, our dedicated business risk management team evaluates a manager’s operations platform and processes to confirm they align with the manager’s investment strategy and products. Only then does our Real Assets Ratings Committee deem a fund suitable for our clients.
Meet the team
When building real assets programs, develop investment objectives strategically but invest tactically. Dispersions are wide and manager selection is key, so we have built a global investment platform aimed at finding the world’s best funds.
