Real Estate

Invest today. Change tomorrow.

Real estate has a robust track record of enhancing portfolio diversification and delivering strong risk-adjusted returns for investors.

At abrdn, we offer expertise across all principal real estate sectors – enabling our clients to target opportunities in their home market and globally.

Our success in real estate is built on deep local research, global insight and an active approach to investing and development of our real estate assets. In this way, we seek to enable our clients to benefit from global real estate themes such as demographic change, urbanisation, technology plus environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors.
