Our history

In 1986, Marty Cohen and Bob Steers set out to help investors capitalize on the emerging opportunity they saw in public REITs. They were convinced that listed real estate could open the market to investors, drive demand and make real estate a larger share of portfolios globally, while also offering opportunities to generate meaningful alpha. It was fertile ground for an active asset management business that continues to thrive today.

Over time, we have expanded operations into Europe and Asia Pacific, extending offerings to investors around the world and forming the industry’s largest global investment team dedicated to real estate securities. Through careful consideration, we have added to our investment capabilities, becoming the largest manager of preferred securities and establishing a global research platform for real estate, infrastructure and other listed real assets.

Our focus is delivering superior investment performance, building around our core strengths in real assets and alternative income to meet the growing demand for yield, diversification and real returns.

Cohen & Steers is headquartered in New York, with offices in London, Dublin, Hong Kong and Tokyo, and has been listed on the New York Stock Exchange since 2004 (ticker CNS).
