Assets Under Management



A Differentiated Approach to Infrastructure Investing

We formally entered the infrastructure business in 2018 with a very clear mission – to leverage our long-standing relationships with Municipalities, Universities, Schools and Hospitals (MUSH) and serve as their all-in-one capital solution to address deferred maintenance, decarbonization efforts and self-sustaining/resiliency needs. Harrison Street was uniquely positioned to not only identify this extensive and growing opportunity set, but to readily access it and support our partners in the space.

As we mark our 5-year anniversary, we are proud of our accomplishments and look forward to continuing to be the partner of choice to many of the nation’s leading universities, colleges, health systems and government institutions.
