Company > About Us

Cohen & Steers is a global investment manager specializing in liquid real assets, including real estate securities, listed infrastructure, commodities and natural resource equities, as well as preferred securities and other income solutions.


In 1986, Martin Cohen and Robert Steers established Cohen & Steers as the first investment company to specialize in listed real estate. As the global real estate securities market evolved, we expanded our operations to Europe and Asia Pacific, forming the industry’s largest global investment team dedicated to real estate securities. Through careful consideration, we have added to our investment offerings over the years, developing related strategies designed to meet investors’ increasing demand for dividend income and real returns.

Cohen & Steers was listed on the New York Stock Exchange in 2004 under the ticker: CNS. As of
December 31, 2015, the company had $52.6 billion in assets under management. Cohen & Steers is headquartered in New York, with offices in London, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Seattle. Investor relations
