Adopting a responsible approach to real estate investing

LGIM Real Assets has been an active player in UK real estate equity since 1971 and currently manages assets of £18.3 billion* for our institutional and retail clients. Our solid track record has enabled us to build a robust network of industry relationships, giving our clients privileged access to deals that would otherwise have been beyond their reach.

With a strong focus on income-producing strategies, our innovative and flexible solutions span commercial real estate and residential development through to operational real estate and long-lease real estate.

Most of the assets we manage are in pooled funds, but we also manage a range of asset-specific joint ventures and segregated accounts. Across our entire real estate equity portfolio, our commitment is the same: to take a responsible investment approach to generating attractive long-term returns for our clients.

Net Zero Carbon Report

Putting that commitment into action, we set ourselves a goal in 2019: to achieve net-zero carbon emissions across our entire real estate equity platform by 2050 under the Better Buildings Partnership climate change initiative.

Key risks

The value of an investment and any income taken from it is not guaranteed and can go down as well as up, you may not get back the amount you originally invested. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

Whilst LGIM has integrated Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) considerations into its investment decision-making and stewardship practices, this does not guarantee the achievement of responsible investing goals within funds that do not include specific ESG goals within their objectives.
