Brookfield has over 20 years of private equity investing experience and has demonstrated the ability to successfully deploy significant capital over a number of market cycles. We often approach investing from a contrarian perspective, targeting out-of-favor sectors, and leveraging the knowledge base across our real assets and related operating platforms to source proprietary transactions and develop underwriting theses.

We seek to invest in high-quality assets in industries where we believe we have a competitive or informational advantage. Target opportunities include investments in businesses that are low cost producers or benefit from high barriers to entry, and in many cases have tangible underlying assets. Our contrarian approach to investing looks to source transactions in out-of-favor sectors and utilize our industry-recognized leadership in distressed investing and restructurings.

Post-acquisition, we seek to deploy an active management approach focused on strategic, operational and/or financial improvements.

Since 2001, we have launched the funds described below.
