Tishman Speyer established its first institutional investment fund in 1997, and since then we have employed a range of investment strategies to pursue acquisitions and development opportunities. Through 17 private and institutional investment vehicles, we have invested approximately $11.3 billion of equity in 50 different global markets. The diversity of these vehicles, combined with our lengthy track record, demonstrates our ability to consistently execute investment strategies across multiple locations and under widely varying market conditions. These strategies and respective vehicles are described below:
Our core strategy focuses on acquiring well-leased, well-maintained office buildings in major global markets and maintaining strong occupancy with creditworthy tenants. It is intended to yield stable, income-producing portfolios with predictable total returns.
