Property

Real assets like commercial property can play an important role in a portfolio – providing scope for growth and income as well as offering balance to other investment types like equities and bonds.

At BMO Global Asset Management we have a range of specialist property capabilities. Our colleagues at BMO Real Estate Partners invest directly in commercial properties in the UK and across Europe whilst our property equities team primarily focus on opportunities among listed real estate businesses.

Our range includes physical property, listed property and blended options with outcomes spanning income, growth and absolute return.
