|University of Cambridge Dept. of Land Economy The Department of Land Economy is a leading international centre, providing a full programme of taught courses within an intensive, research-oriented environment. In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework assessment, 50% of the Department's research work was described as "World Leading" and a further 38% as "Internationally Excellent". Land Economy, as a subject, considers the role and use of land, real estate and environment within an economy. It applies particularly the disciplines of economics, law and planning for the analysis of the governance of land use, urban areas and interactions with other environmental resources. The Department addresses contemporary problems as well as more fundamental analysis. This includes both the role of governments in establishing regulatory frameworks within which land and related markets operate and the role of private organisations in owning, managing and developing physical and financial assets within those markets. This combination gives the Department of Land Economy a unique and valuable perspective of critical public and private issues. The Department currently has over 40 teaching and research staff and approximately 320 students. We have a three year undergraduate course and a postgraduate programme that offers both instructional and research based MPhils, as well as a three-year PhD. Research within the Department falls into one of our two research groups, namely Real Estate and Urban Analysis and Environmental Economy and Policy.||Europe||United Kingdom||Academic|

|Solvay Brussels School of Economics & Management More than one hundred years ago, our founder Ernest Solvay, defined the school's mission as follows: “The mission of the Solvay Business School is to train men and women who are capable of selecting, initiating and managing.” By and large, this mission has remained unchanged. But it has now been extended with the creation of the Solvay Brussels School of Economics & Management: "We are the School of Economics and Management of the Université libre de Bruxelles, with a century-old tradition of excellence in higher education. Our mission is to have a decisive and positive impact on how economic and business challenges are addressed. We fulfill this mission by producing pioneering research and by educating women and men to become true leaders and entrepreneurs in their field.

|University of Hong Kong The Department of Real Estate and Construction (formerly known as Department of Surveying) was formally established as a new department in June 1984. It is directly associated with the surveying profession through the professional accreditation of its undergraduate program by the Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors (HKIS) and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (UK) (RICS). The Department seeks to meet the academic challenges of the surveying profession from an interdisciplinary base. A large proportion of graduates follow a professional career as surveyors. Surveyors usually develop a specialism and traditionally undergraduate education for these specialist sections has been largely independent, but increasingly the environment of real estate and construction has shown that this position can no longer be sustained. This Department was the first to recognize this and develop a common degree for these major areas which allows students to specialize after graduation rather than before. The Department’s graduate taught courses and its research degree program reflect the same philosophy with a prime objective being to cross traditional disciplinary boundaries in finding solutions to problems associated with land, real estate and construction.||Asia||Hong Kong||Academic|

package at as low a price as possible. This is achieved by investing

PGGM has total pension capital of around EUR 57 billion. This capital comprises pension contributions and investment returns and is used to pay pensions, both now and in the future.
Management PGGM's policy is determined by its Board of Governors, which comprises six representatives of the employers and six representatives of the employees, in addition to an independent chairman. The Board is supported by an Advisory Council, which provides advice both in response to specific questions and unsolicited. The Advisory Council, which includes representatives of the employers and employees and also pensioner organisations, represents a valuable sounding board for the Board of Governors.
PGGM is based in Zeist and has over 1,200 employees.
PGGM's investment strategy
Its investment policies focus specifically on sustainability and careful application of Asset Liability Management. PGGM invests in equities, fixed-interest securities, real estate, private equity and commodities.
Investments manages the pension capital of PGGM. Until recently, most of the asset management activities related to the collective pension scheme. However, following the introduction of the PGGM Extra Pension (PEP) in May 2002, asset management has been extended to include other products for employees in the healthcare and social work sector.
PGGM seeks to maximise its investment returns and outperform the market. Using new investment categories and entering into new markets are important ways of creating added value. These are conditional on PGGM's social responsibility to continue providing good pensions at low cost into the long-term future.
Each pension fund has a different membership base. A large part of PGGM's pension commitments, for example, relate to women, who live longer than men on average and are also more likely to work part-time. Its members are also relatively young. And these factors have consequences for the fund's investment policies. PGGM uses an Asset Liability Management (ALM) study to calculate these consequences.
The diagram below shows PGGM´s strategic investment mix.

Castellum is one of the major listed real estate companies in Sweden. The
fair value of the real estate portfolio amounts to approx. SEK 29
billions, and comprises commercial properties. The real estate portfolio
is owned and managed by six wholly owned subsidiaries with strong local
roots in five growth regions: Greater Gothenburg (incl. Borås, Kungsbacka
and Halmstad), the Öresund Region (Malmö, Lund and Helsingborg), Greater
Stockholm (Stockholm’s inner suburbs), Mälardalen (Örebro, Västerås and
Uppsala) and Eastern Götaland (Jönköping, Linköping, Värnamo and Växjö).
The Castellum share is registered on OMX Nordic Exchange Large Cap. Castellum’s business concept is to develop and add value to its real estate portfolio, focusing on the best possible earnings and asset growth, by offering customised commercial properties, through a strong and clear presence in five Swedish growth regions. Castellum’s operations are focused on cash flow and earnings growth, which along with a stable capital structure provide the preconditions for good growth in the company, while at the same time offering shareholders a competitive dividend. Castellum’s strategy is to manage its properties in a decentralised and small-scale organization with wholly owned subsidiaries. By having local roots the subsidiaries get close relations with the customers and knowledge of their operations and needs. The close customer relations aim for the customer to view Castellum as a natural business partner with whom to discuss current and future needs for premises. The companies also receive good knowledge of the local real estate and rental markets, market changes and business opportunities. Castellum’s subsidiaries operate under their own names which strengthen the local identity. The subsidiaries’ organization Castellum has six wholly owned subsidiaries which each have about 30 employees. Each company has a Managing Director, property manager and local facility manager which give a short decision making process and creates a customer oriented and active organization. The facilities managers have the most contact with the customers and are therefore the natural representatives of Castellum. Property management is mainly carried out by own personnel. In cases where external services are purchased, high demands are placed on companies used in terms of quality, customer contact, service and environmental awareness. The company possesses decentralised purchasing expertise for negotiations of new construction, extension or refurbishment work. The group does not have its own organization for undertaking contracts.

Shaftesbury’s strategy is very clear and focused. The Group invests only
in those districts within the West End which have an enduring demand from
occupiers and popularity with their customers. Our investments are all
close to the unique cluster of shops, restaurants, theatres, cinemas and
world class galleries, museums and historic sites, which are the essence
of London’s West End. These districts all have excellent access to a wide
choice of public transport both day and night.
We invest in locations close to streets traditionally regarded as prime with the aim of assembling clusters of buildings or villages where we see opportunities to create rental growth. This approach allows us to benefit from active estate management across our villages, with bold projects and innovative changes of use. We have a wide range of unit sizes and uses within our portfolio which provide us with great flexibility in meeting the needs of tenants and adapting to changing conditions.
An essential ingredient of this strategy is our encouragement of new trading concepts. Many of our retail and restaurant tenants are unique. At the same time well known international brands are choosing to locate their first UK stores in our villages. In this way, our villages are a refreshing antidote to what is available elsewhere in increasingly homogenous high streets and shopping centres.
Implementation of this strategy demands an exceptionally detailed knowledge of our locations, individual properties and potential tenants. We derive considerable expertise and market advantage from working within a few minutes walk of all our investments. Also, we have acquired a specialised and very intricate blend of skills both to regenerate buildings and to create distinctive space with an emphasis on shops and restaurants, which in our villages we know will let well and suffer limited obsolescence.

|BlackRock Invest Management (UK) Limited Beginning with its founding in 1988, BlackRock’s story over a quarter of a century is about a commitment to putting clients first, innovative thinking, passion for performance and a remarkable collaboration. BlackRock began in 1988 with eight people in a single room who believed they could build a better asset management firm. They shared a determination to put client needs and interests first and a dedication to clear thinking and fact-based, data-driven investing, as well as a passion for understanding and managing risk. Founded under the umbrella of The Blackstone Group, the firm initially focused primarily on fixed-income. By listening to clients and understanding their unmet needs, the firm was able to develop important early innovations related to closed-end funds, trusts, defined contribution plans and more. One of these was the Blackstone Term Trust, which raised $1 billion and set the business on a path of steady growth and success. Development also began on Aladdin®, the unified investment platform that ultimately combines trading, risk management, and client reporting. Aladdin’s capacity for insight would distinguish BlackRock as an investment and risk manager and become the basis for the BlackRock Solutions business.||Europe||United Kingdom||Investment Bank|

Unite Group Plc
Mission & Vision
The student housing market is characterised by inconsistency, inflexibility and a lack of empathy. Yet we believe that the ability to offer more choice of value-for-money, comfortable accommodation is key to enhancing the student experience.
With our large and increasing customer base, our mission has evolved - we aim to become the first choice for student accommodation.
To that end we have set out three strategic objectives
-our customers with great value and service
-our people with challenging, meaningful and rewarding careers; and
-our shareholders with continually improving returns
Only UNITE has the vision and commitment to:
-focus entirely on our student market - developing authoritative insights into their current and future needs
-change the lives of our customers by continually developing affordable services of the highest standards. In so doing, we offer consistency and choice.
-operate inclusively and responsibly, with intelligence and imagination to accommodate the needs of our customers.
We recognise that our university clients need a flexible approach to the provision of accommodation. Often, we will work together on ‘nominations’ style agreements for our existing accommodation, perhaps to cover shorter-term housing requirements. Alternatively, UNITE can offer academic institutions longer term traditional arrangements although we are different from some of our competitors in that we do not generally take the PFI approach.
Over half of our accommodation across the UK is ‘direct let.’ We market predominantly to 2nd and 3rd year students, who are not normally catered for by university housing. To these students we offer an entirely new style of student accommodation.
UNITE manages the whole process in-house and operations include:
-Accommodation services such as welfare support for residents, customer management and on-line services such as room booking and allocations, 24-hour Customer Service Centre and an informative student website.
-Management of the properties including traditional facilities management, maintenance and security.
-Providing development solutions such as identifying potential sites for new accommodation, the design and build of new sites, the conversion of buildings from alternative use and the refurbishment of existing premises.

Intervest Offices specialises in Belgian quality business premises, which
are leased out to blue-chip property tenants. The real estate in which we
invest consists chiefly of recent buildings that are strategically located
in good locations outside town centres.
By business premises we mean office buildings, semi-industrial buildings, warehouses and hi-tech buildings. We do not generally invest in residential property or shops.
The investment policy is oriented towards achieving a combination of a direct return based on lease revenues, and indirect returns based on the growth in value of a portfolio of real estate. Growth of the portfolio is not a central plank of our policy as such, but rather the creation of shareholder value, based on steadily-increasing lease revenues.

|NN Investment Partners (Japan) Co., Ltd. The NN Brand has its roots in two pillars of the Dutch insurance industry: De Nederlanden, founded in 1845 and De Nationale, one of the first modern life insurance companies to take an actuarial approach, established in 1863. In 1932 these two competitors entered into an alliance, ultimately resulting in a merger three decades later: Nationale Nederlanden was born and adopted its now-familiar ‘N’ logo. By the end of the 1980s Nationale Nederlanden was one of the largest insurance companies in the Netherlands, with an extensive international presence and the ambition to offer a complete spectrum of financial services. To fulfil that ambition, the firm decided to merge once again; Nationale Nederlanden joined forces with NMB Postbank in 1991 becoming Internationale Nederlanden Groep, better known today as ING. With a steady growth in demand for asset management products and services, ING Investment Management (ING IM) was created in 1994 as the manager for both the bank and the insurance company, and with the vision to become a world-class third party provider of asset management solutions. Within ten years ING IM had grown to be one of the world’s leading asset managers and, with its heritage in insurance, it quickly became known for a deep expertise in managing the assets of insurers, pension funds, sovereign wealth funds and private investors.||Asia||Japan||Asset Manager|
