Fidelity Real Estate

A boutique real estate business within a globally established asset management house

Fidelity Real Estate is the real estate division of Fidelity International - a global leader in the investment and retirement savings business. Established in 1969, Fidelity International is an independent, privately-owned company with a long-term business perspective. This structure allows us to focus on our clients without the pressure of short-term shareholder demands.

In 2006 Fidelity International started its direct real estate division, which fits well with Fidelity’s long-term approach to investing. Fidelity as a firm has reinforced the development of its real estate business since the start through significant seed capital investment, recruiting a team of high calibre experts, developing a proprietary, robust risk management framework and putting in place a long-term operational infrastructure for the business.

Fidelity Real Estate offers institutional investors direct access to high quality real estate properties in the largest and most liquid markets across Europe and the UK with the aim to deliver a stable income stream along with capital appreciation through active management.

Fidelity Real Estate has embedded the full value chain in-house, with our own real estate experts across acquisition, asset management, risk, research, operations, finance and investor relationship management. With an average of over 25 years' industry experience* the senior members of our investment team have worked through multiple property cycles.
