Competitive Advantages

What if we owned this asset?
What if we wanted to buy it or sell it?
What kind of services would we need?
What kind of advice would we want?

These questions, and questions like them, play a big part in defining the principal mindset that makes Brookfield Financial different, and that makes us better at providing the advice and services that clients need.

Another important difference at Brookfield Financial is our pooled compensation plan. Our people benefit from every successful transaction. That’s a tremendous motivator, and it supports a culture of collaboration, of shared intelligence and effort, and of working together to serve our clients that is distinctly Brookfield Financial.

A Reputation for Quality

We have a reputation for the quality of our underwriting. Our advice is always considered advice. It’s one of the reasons that we have been so successful at managing complicated transactions for our clients.
