Carlyle's Asian real estate team seeks value-oriented investments with repositioning or redevelopment opportunities and development projects in primary cities across China and Japan.
The investment approach of Carlyle's Asian real estate team comprises the following four major principles:
- Market-Focused Approach: Carlyle utilizes local market deal teams with a strong knowledge of local and global capital markets. Focusing on market fundamentals, we target the strongest assets in our primary markets of China and Japan.
- Proactive Deal Creation: By employing a proactive opportunistic investment strategy, Carlyle generates and evaluates highly selective deals on an exclusive directly negotiated basis with motivated sellers. We provide speed and certainty in committing to complex transactions.
- Active Management: Investment professionals devote a significant amount of their time working closely with local operating partners to create value through active management. Carlyle establishes a business plan for each asset identifying strategies to optimize income and position each asset for timely exits.
- The Carlyle Platform: We coordinate closely with other Carlyle funds, particularly Carlyle funds in Asia, to maximize the synergistic benefits of Carlyle’s global platform. We believe this cooperation and coordination across disciplines within Carlyle provides us with a competitive edge.
