Brookfield Investment Methodology

Brookfield Methodology

We, Brookfield Asset Management, always operate in a methodology where we're trying to walk away from the cliff, always look for opportunities away from where the crowd is going, and not go with the crowd, and in real asset investing, that's a vital lesson to learn.

There are four Investing Principles we follow:

  • Invest where we possess competitive advantages.
  • Acquire assets on a value basis to maximize return on capital.
  • Find assets that have inherent cash flow (today or soon) and build sustainable cash flows to provide certainty, reduce risk and lower the cost of capital.
  • Recognize that superior returns often require contrarian/go against current practice thinking.
