Brookfield Asset Management Inc. is a global asset manager focused on property, renewable power, private equity and infrastructure. It has been a pioneer in investing in emerging markets, and can trace its roots back 112 years to a Sao Paolo-based infrastructure company.
Brookfield Advisors India Pvt Ltd. was formed in 2008 as an Indian operating unit of Brookfield. The unit is focused on providing non-binding investment advice to Brookfield in the real estate and infrastructure sectors.
