We seek to be the leading global private investment firm focused on logistics real estate. We have been pursuing this aspiration for over three decades.

Cabot builds on a long history in the industrial property business. As this important property sector has evolved, Cabot has transformed its business and become a leading global institutional investment firm with a distinctive focus on logistics properties. The company was formed in 1986 as the investment advisor affiliate of Cabot, Cabot & Forbes, a national real estate company that built some of the first master planned industrial and business parks in the US. Over the ensuing three decades, the industrial property sector has evolved into global asset classes comprised of high-quality functional buildings that are critical to the flow of goods in all major economies. eCommerce and urban migration are driving demand near world-class cities and create significant opportunity for well-capitalized investors.
