About Brookfield Asset Management

Brookfield Asset Management, Inc. is a global alternative asset manager with over $200 billion of assets under management, focusing on the real asset sectors of property, renewable energy and infrastructure..

Who We Are

With approximately $725 billion in assets under management, and an over 100-year heritage as a global owner and operator, we focus on investing in the backbone of the global economy, and are committed to supporting and enhancing the communities in which we operate. We put our own capital to work alongside our partners’ in virtually every transaction, aligning interests and bringing the strengths of our operational expertise, global reach and large-scale capital to bear on everything we do.

Our Approach

Leveraging Our Operating Expertise Our experience as owners and operators enables us to effectively enhance cash flows, increase the value of our investments and produce solid long-term returns for our investors. On-the-Ground Insights Well-resourced operations in strategic locations around the world provide real-time market intelligence and bottom-up investment insights. Hands-On Operations Our integrated teams of seasoned operational professionals take an active role in maximizing the performance of our assets and businesses. Comfort with Complexity Across market cycles, we have built an expertise in executing large, creative transactions and managing ongoing growth projects to drive value. Investing on a Value Basis We seek to deliver attractive long-term returns and provide strong downside protection for our investors—including pension plans, endowments, foundations, sovereign wealth funds, financial institutions, insurance companies and the private wealth channel. Focus on Quality We are disciplined in acquiring high-quality assets and businesses that we believe can provide strong downside protection across market cycles. Patient Approach We take a long-term view in deploying capital but are ready to act decisively when the right opportunities emerge. Contrarian View We recognize that generating attractive returns often requires seeking out assets, businesses, markets and sectors that are out of favor or experiencing periods of distress. Sustainability at Our Core We are more than simply an investor—we are active participants in industries and economies around the world, and committed to the long-term health of these local markets. Operational We understand a company’s potential and help enable it to sustain itself over the long term. We have successfully operated assets and businesses through multiple market cycles, building exceptional in-house knowledge, relationships and execution capabilities across sectors and regions. Financial We implement responsible capital and governance structures that support businesses for the long term. The concept starts with Brookfield and extends to our businesses and assets, and to our partnerships with investors. Environmental We are committed to managing our investments to be consistent with the transition to a net-zero economy by 2050. And throughout our operations, we strive to minimize our environmental impact and improve our efficient use of resources over time.

Global Presence

Global Reach Well-established operations in more than 30 countries on five continents enable us to readily invest where attractive opportunities emerge. Local Insights Our on-the-ground presence in key locations around the world provides us with knowledge of local market conditions and trends, as well as access to proprietary deal flow. Strategic Flexibility We can quickly scale up to put our investment ideas into action, allowing us to allocate capital where it is otherwise scarce, acquire assets below replacement cost and leverage our operating expertise to enhance the value of our investments. Contributing to Local Communities We are actively involved in the communities in which we operate—creating jobs, contributing to local charities and sitting on the boards of various nonprofit organizations.

Careers

Working at Brookfield means becoming part of a collaborative, results-oriented team at a firm that has owned and operated real-asset businesses for 120 years. Invested in people We put as much time and care into our hiring decisions as into our investment decisions, and we take a long-term approach to both. We offer opportunities for growth through on-the-job learning and roles that provide exposure to different businesses, geographies and teams. We have a "grow from within" approach to the development of our people, with a focus on internal mobility across business groups, functions and regions, and within our portfolio companies. We favor individuals who are collaborative, entrepreneurial and disciplined, as these attributes reflect our approach to investing as well as the characteristics of our leaders. Our values Collaborative Our culture is built on mutual respect, teamwork and passion. Senior leaders work side by side with colleagues at all levels, and a commitment to shared success is a key attribute. Entrepreneurial We promote a results-oriented culture. Responsibility is given based on initiative and hard work rather than job title, and decisions are made close to the action. Disciplined Team members share an awareness of, and commitment to, our goal of generating superior long-term returns for shareholders and investors.
