As important as what you invest in
is how you invest.

The Heitman Difference

In a business where changing market conditions are as much a constant as unexpected challenges, what differentiates a leading company is how it navigates these challenges to meet its goals. We embrace an environment of intellectual honesty as a cornerstone of our foundation. What does this mean? It means that we thoughtfully plan each step of our evolution, communicating transparently and respectfully. And we put all hands on deck, bringing our best investment, management, and research expertise together in one nimble, multi-disciplined team.

    • Delivering on trust

      We don’t just work for our clients — we work to know them, building relationships over time and helping them see every angle of an investment. We earn their trust and their business by delivering the outcome they’re seeking while working to exceed their expectations. Over multiple economic and property market cycles, through capital market downturn and improvement, we have applied our knowledge, experience, and dedication to forging effective client relationships.

  • Building sustainability

    Every aspect of a property affects the environment. For this reason, it’s crucial that we recognize the long-term implications of sustainability on building value, tenant location decisions, and global climate change, as well as the overall impact that our investments have on the environment. At Heitman, we understand the need to effectively incorporate sustainability into all of our investments in order to reduce our carbon footprint and contribute to global environmental initiatives.

    Responsible governance

    Our internal policies and international business practices also consider the social and governance responsibilities of our operations. We have highly experienced compliance professionals who are responsible for ensuring that our business is run ethically and in accordance with all regulatory requirements under which our operations are governed. We incorporate responsible governance into our investment process by selecting service providers and operating partners who display strong ethical and corporate governance and meet our high standards for transparency and integrity. Additionally, we are supportive of the Institutional Limited Partners Association (ILPA) and similar organizations that stress the importance of responsible governance.

  • Environmental awareness and efficiency

    We are aware that we can play an important role in contributing to long-term, global efforts to improve environmental conditions. Finding effective solutions to these challenges is a priority for Heitman. Our professionals and service providers keep abreast of advancements in technology and changes in environmental policies on a global basis to ensure our compliance with market standards at a minimum, including those defined by Energy Star and LEED certifications. We strive to improve energy and water consumption in our portfolios to create an investment outcome that balances the long-term needs of the community with the investment objectives of our clients.

    Civic involvement

    Working to improve our communities is an extension of our company’s purpose. While Heitman employees make the most of our corporate donation and matching contribution programs, their commitment to community service goes beyond simply writing a check. In all of our regions, they take pride in coming together and devoting their time and energy to community projects such as cleaning up playgrounds, painting classrooms, and restoring interim housing facilities for the homeless.
