The London Company Mid Cap Strategy made the following comment about CBRE Group, Inc. (NYSE:CBRE) in its first quarter 2023 investor letter:
“Initiated: CBRE Group, Inc. (NYSE:CBRE) – CBRE is the largest commercial real estate (CRE) service provider in a highly fragmented, >$340B global market. It provides multiple integrated real estate services for owners and tenants including consulting, transactional work (property sales and leasing), facility management services, and more. The inflow of institutional investors and demand for outsourcing facility services are structural and secular tailwinds. CBRE is well positioned to benefit from these trends and gain share due to its impressive competitive advantages, which include unmatched scale, robust transaction data, service bundling capabilities, and its one- stop-shop offering for CRE needs. CBRE’s diversification strategy and shift in its advisory business have created better stability & higher quality earnings. Recent weakness created an opportunity for us to own the #1 player in an industry with long-term tailwinds and where scale is a key element of success.”
