Established in 2016, Brookfield Business Partners acquires and manages businesses with high barriers to entry, low production costs and the potential to benefit from Brookfield’s global expertise as an owner and operator of real assets. Its investment objective is to generate long-term returns without taking undue risk, and it seeks returns of at least 15% on its investments.
Brookfield Business Partners’ strategy is to acquire businesses on a value basis by targeting out-of-favor sectors; actively manage its operations in order to enhance cash flows and earnings; and opportunistically sell businesses when valuations are favorable. It has the flexibility to invest in multiple industries. Its current operations are primarily in commercial and residential real estate services, construction, energy and industrials operations.
