Our Firm

Harrison Street is a leading investment management firm exclusively focused on alternative real assets. Headquartered in Chicago and London with offices throughout North America, Europe and Asia, the Firm has more than 280-employees and nearly $56 billion in assets under management. Clients of the Firm include a global institutional investor base domiciled in North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Latin America.




Assets Under Management



Despite the industry facing challenging macro headwinds in 2023, Harrison Street persevered. Our intentional focus on alternative real assets, a strategy honed since our founding in 2005, allowed us to thrive amid adversity, achieving notable advancements and significant milestones. In a year where many paused investments, we selectively acquired, developed, and disposed of assets in our targeted sectors which we believe exhibit their strongest fundamentals in our 18-year history. Our commitment to growth included expanding our team, opening new offices globally, and launching technology initiatives throughout 2023.
