Baron Funds made the following comment about Jones Lang LaSalle Incorporated (NYSE:JLL) in its Q3 2022 investor letter:

"Jones Lang LaSalle Incorporated (NYSE:JLL) is one of the leading commercial real estate services firms in the world with scale, product breadth, and leadership positions across its diversified real estate business segments.

It is currently valued at only 8 times estimated 2023 earnings per share versus a long-term average of 14 times earnings per share.

CBRE and Jones Lang LaSalle have scale, product breadth, and leadership positions across their diversified real estate business segments. They continue to gain market share and are well positioned to capitalize on ample attractive acquisition opportunities in the years ahead given strong and liquid balance sheets. Though we acknowledge that growth in certain segments of their businesses has slowed and is likely to remain pressured in the months ahead due to the global economic slowdown and higher interest rates, we believe both are attractively valued and present compelling return potential in the next few years."
