Investing is our business
Viewing the world through an investor’s lens
Periods of adversity are when companies show their
true colors. Some, whether by choice or necessity,
look to cut costs, pull back and defend the bottom line.
Others, backed by discipline, financial strength and
confidence in their strategic plan, see opportunity to
invest and sow the seeds for future growth.
For the people of Cohen & Steers, investing is more
than a profession. It’s a mindset that guides everything
we do, both in our portfolios and in our business. It
informs where we allocate capital, how we manage risk,
and why we believe in the specialist model. It provides
resolve in times of uncertainty. And it keeps us focused
on our mission of delivering results for our clients.
This investment-driven culture has been central to our
34-year staying power in an industry where a shrinking
number of active managers are gaining market share
by delivering consistent outperformance and a clear
value proposition. Amid the tremendous human and
economic hardships of 2020, our values continued to
guide us, sustaining our commitment to investing in
each other and in our business.
