Alternative Property Investment

Brokerage of Unlisted Funds and Derivatives

For investors whose appetite to diversify their real estate exposure has grown beyond traditional real estate structures, we have a dedicated team able to evaluate and advise on alternative real estate investment instruments.

Our capabilities include:

  • Unlisted fund brokerage - PropertyMatch
  • IPD derivatives
  • Inflation derivatives


A joint venture between CBRE and GFI, PropertyMatch is a screen-based secondary trading platform dedicated to unlisted real estate funds, providing interactive prices on a real time basis. Since 2009, the platform has arranged $9bn of transactional volume globally through a total of 1,200 transactions.

The platform allows investors to indicate prices and volumes at which they would buy/sell units in a selection of unlisted property funds across Europe. The screen is fully interactive and prices can be entered either by investors directly or by the PropertyMatch team on the investor’s behalf.
