Who are we?

Helping our members deliver the “S” in their ESG strategy

We are a philanthropic membership group, drawn from across Real Estate and Real Assets

We believe that, by coming together and aggregating our resources, skills and enthusiasm, we can have a positive social impact on large numbers of UK students thus promoting diversity and opening up our industry to all.

Kickstart your Career in Real Assets

At The Academy we stand for increasing access, diversity, and intellectual curiosity amongst UK schools and students by connecting you to some of the country’s leading Real Estate and Real Assets firms. We do this through our core engagement programmes.

The Book Competition

Showcase your creative talent


The Academy’s National Book Competition occurs annually during the academic year. It is designed to encourage students from across the UK to “have a go" and enter a short essay, blog, or story. Each year we will publish a book with these student submissions and send it to 3,000 schools, leading employers, universities, and the media.
