With a global footprint and long term outlook, we invest in property assets that meet the current and evolving requirements of the market.
PhilosophyWe believe that real estate is a people business, and our success depends on identifying and acquiring properties that people want to use and experience.
We have a global network of partners and managers who provide innovative and long-term solutions that address the needs and expectations of end users, now and in the future.
ProcessWe invest on a global relative value basis. This means identifying the most attractive assets from different markets and evaluating them against each other, rather than investing strictly by region, asset type, or other single factors.
We have a broad and flexible mandate and this is reflected in our portfolio, which includes residential, industrial, office, hospitality and other assets. We invest in both the equity and debt of existing properties, as well as construction and development projects.
PortfolioADIA has been investing in real estate since its creation in 1976, and our investments now span all major regions, sectors and asset types.
We review our portfolio constantly to ensure that each asset is achieving its full potential.
As a long-term investor, we have the patience and in-house expertise to underwrite the most complex projects, which we have learned often bring the highest returns over time.
In India, mass urbanisation, rising wages and a rapidly growing middle class have led to a significant shortfall of housing supply. In 2015, the Indian government estimated that shortage to be up to 20 million homes, and analysts forecast up to 40 million affordable and mid-income homes will be needed to meet demand over the next seven years.

TeamOur regionally focused teams, together with a dedicated Hospitality team, comprise seasoned professionals with experience across global markets and real estate disciplines.
Together, they combine an international outlook with first-hand appreciation of the cultural and technical nuances of their home markets. We provide our people with the resources to ensure they remain at the forefront of industry innovation.
Operating as one global team provides us with great visibility on what’s happening in real estate across the world and requires us to actively share knowledge across the team. Within the department we have a number of forums, open to everyone, where you might hear from a colleague on student housing in Europe, or logistics in China. We use these sessions to share ideas and, ultimately, to shape our decision making.Harry IpSenior Portfolio Manager

While we are based in Abu Dhabi, we make it a priority to remain connected to the markets we invest in. We travel a lot, of course, which means we can see things first hand, as well as visit our network of other investors and market participants to understand their views. It helps us to link themes and ideas together and decide on how we should approach the major trends shaping the sector.Sultan Al HallamiInvestment Manager
