Invesco was founded in 1986 and has since established itself in the commercial property sector as one of several key investment managers, joint venture partners and debt and equity capital providers that exist today.
As of the third quarter of 2020, the company had nearly $80 billion in assets under management, and it originated just over $3 billion in debt in 2019 to add to its pool of overall activity, according to its website.
Invesco Real Estate is one of the world’s largest real estate investment managers, deploying funds into real property as well as into publicly traded securities globally for institutional investors who pour money into the platform. It also invests in debt securities behind institutional quality real estate. (It also dabbles in energy and global infrastructure as well as gold and special minerals securities, as per its website.)
Its real estate debt originations business has been growing steadily on the back of its access to world-class sponsors. It doled out $2 billion in fresh debt in 2018, and followed that up with more than $3 billion in 2019, behind strong deals coast to coast as they duked it out in what was a hyper-competitive landscape.
Furthermore, the platform utilizes value-added and opportunistic strategies targeting a breadth of chances for value creation across the globe.
