The hospitality mindset

Operational excellence and a 'hospitality mindset' are crucial to driving income and value creation. We manage every building as its own business, focused on optimising tenant services and income with efficiently-run operations. And we don’t stop at our living and hospitality assets; we consider this approach best practice across our whole real estate business.  

Real Estate Investment Outlook

Schroders Capital Investment Outlook for real estate summarises our experts’ views on the risks and opportunities in real estate markets around the world.

Our business

Drawing on our ‘hospitality mindset’, we target Hospitality and Living opportunities that can facilitate multiple ways to create value. 

Our investors are looking for long-term growth, so we seek hotel concepts and living formats that are well-positioned for their locations and target customer markets, meaning they are in balanced or high demand from multiple occupant types.  

This provides an attractive foundation for value creation strategies because it means both landlord and occupier business models align.
