Global Real Assets

Transforming businesses through people and human capital strategy

The Real Assets sector is dynamic and constantly evolving, especially as advancements in technology and sustainability continue to accelerate. This industry shift has also impacted the hiring market, as demand for talent that is more strategic, innovative, and flexible has increased.

Real estate, infrastructure, and energy & natural resources increasingly intersect in meaningful ways, such as:

  • Considerations of energy and sustainability undergird infrastructure projects and real estate developments.
  • Real estate investors want to understand how better to power buildings.
  • Infrastructure innovations drive changes to the built, urban landscape

Our Global Real Assets practice, which encompasses Real Estate, Infrastructure, and Energy & Natural Resources, is well-positioned to advise companies through this period. We utilize market intelligence and our deep, global network to advise established and entrepreneurial firms on their human capital needs and the real assets talent market. Through our reliable process and methodology, we get to know clients and candidates in order to help all parties come to well informed decisions. We pride ourselves in bringing good values, sound judgment, creativity, and tenacity to every engagement.

We partner with a range of clients, including private and public investment firms, sovereign wealth funds, family offices, developers, owners/operators, third-party advisors, investment banks, merchant traders, portfolio companies, and venture-backed technology businesses.
