Investment management business

Our core business involves receiving deposits of funds from our clients and setting up, and managing, private funds for which real estate is treated as a key target of investments.

Asset management operations

We provide investment services targeting real estate for our clients on a one-stop basis. Our highly experienced professionals handle details of the overall process from investment strategy proposals to setting up funds, acquisition of investments, asset management prior to the expiration of management terms, and the disposition of investments in order to achieve investment success and to satisfy the diverse needs of our clients.

Asset management operations

Real estate advisory operations

Experts in every field provide optimal solutions to various requests pertaining to real estate investment made by our clients regarding the funds managed by our group.

Operations for developing and managing commercial facilities

Professionals from the group and professionals outside the group come together to offer a comprehensive operating platform for commercial facilities. We aim to facilitate the appeal of a wide range of commercial facilities, including downtown facilities, facilities connected directly to terminal train stations, and suburban facilities, by implementing appropriate measures to different assets.

Investment banking business

In addition to primarily investing through our group’s funds, we also provide different types of advisory services by taking advantage over our expertise and network.

Co-investment of funds

We invest in funds set up and managed by our investment management section on a joint basis with our clients. By investing in such funds ourselves, we significantly increase the earnings we obtain from the management of funds. As the term “co-investment” suggests, we share the same risks as our clients; therefore, our co-investment approach is met with positive responses amongst our clients.

Co-investment of funds

Real estate investments

With the goal of securing stable earnings, we retain carefully selected properties based on assessments made by our professionals. We primarily invest in properties that are not targeted for fund investments, but rather targeted towards commercial facilities, office buildings, and assets located in favorable locations for which stable, long-term rental income can be expected.

Real estate investments

Other investments

We invest across a wide range of areas, including venture capital funds, debts, private equities, and overseas real estate funds, where we can apply the strengths of our group. We will continue to carefully invest while seeking to develop the investments as our source of income that is immune to the effects of the real estate market.

Other investments

Corporateadvisory services

We harness a wide-ranging, advanced experts and personal network to provide a broad spectrum of advisory services, and strategies, to increase the corporate value of our clients such as M&A, capital tie-ups, and financing.
