Company Profile

LaSalle operates in 17 countries and 24 offices worldwide. As an independent subsidiary of Jones Lang LaSalle Incorporated (NYSE: JLL), one of the world’s largest real estate companies, we have a presence in every region of the world in which we invest.

LaSalle Investment Management (LaSalle) is a global investment advisor and a network of subsidiaries of Jones Lang LaSalle Incorporated that invests on behalf of its clients in private real estate, private real estate related assets and publicly traded real estate companies. LaSalle acts as a fiduciary in its role as an investment adviser and in this regard its primary responsibility is to maximize the investment returns for its clients, within the constraints imposed upon LaSalle via client management agreements. LaSalle believes that environmental, social responsibility and corporate governance (ESG) factors can have an impact on investment performance to varying degrees across companies, sectors, regions, asset classes and timeframes and should be considered when evaluating real estate securities, real estate related investments and managing real estate assets. LaSalle will measure its success in this endeavor as follows: success in incorporating ESG factors in its investment decision-making processes, success in engaging third parties on ESG issues and success in implementing ESG initiatives at investment properties.

Sustainability Strategy

LaSalle Investment Management’s primary objective is to deliver superior investment results for its clients; sustainability best practices are a key component to achieving this objective. LaSalle has a range of tools such as its Global Environmental, Social Responsibility, and Corporate Governance Policy, Due Diligence Guidelines, and its Green Guide, which detail how LaSalle incorporates sustainability into its decision making process for investments. Working together with LaSalle’s Sustainability Officers, fund teams and asset managers are responsible for implementing ESG best practices and reporting to clients on the sustainability programs within their funds.
