We are headquartered Frankfurt am Main / Germany but our approximately 3,360 full-time equivalents (FTEs) operate globally, providing a range of traditional and alternative investment capabilities to clients worldwide. We have a fully integrated global investment group, supported by our Chief Investment Office which supplies the overarching framework that guides our investment decisions.

Our alternative investments include real estate, infrastructure, secondary private equity solutions, liquid real assets and sustainable investments. We also offer a range of passive investments.

As a regulated asset manager we act as a fiduciary for our clients and we are conscious of our societal impact. Responsible investing has been a key part of our heritage for more than 20 years, because it serves the best interests of those who entrust us to manage their assets.
