The Academy of Real Assets helps organisations deliver a large and measurable “S” impact at low annual cost

“The Academy is industry-wide and that is very important to us. Of course, we have our own ‘S’ initiatives, but we all want to ensure, as a sector, that we are open to all the talents.

“We must introduce ourselves to those that would not typically consider real estate or real assets as a career. Via the breadth and calibre of its members, this is what The Academy does uniquely”.

Eric Adler, President and CEO, PGIM Private Alternatives

Our Ambition

  • To offer hope and opportunity, through careers in Real estate and Real Assets, to thousands of students across the UK every year.
  • To widen the talent pipeline for our industry.

What We Do

  • Set up events with our members to allow our students to understand and experience the opportunities in real estate and real assets.

  • Measure the impact we are having on the students.
