Back in June, I thought that Brookfield Asset Management (NYSE:BAM) was well-placed to continue growing its lucrative fee-generating asset management. That process continues to benefit the company, but the market hasn't rewarded the company for that progress. While BAM is an uncommonly complex investment, I believe that complexity is at least somewhat offset by the company's demonstrated ability to successfully deploy capital into a wide range of markets where it can earn solid economic returns. In my view, Brookfield Infrastructure Partners (NYSE:BIP) and Brookfield Property Partners (NYSE:BPY) are more appealing total return candidates today, but they're also riskier.
