Revenue was $17.82 billion, up from $16 billion for the same quarter last year.
Analysts had expected revenue of $14.6 billion and earnings of 26 cents per share, according to financial markets data firm Refinitiv.
The company says it has declared a quarterly dividend of US$0.18 per share, an increase of 12 per cent.
It says it has appointed Nicholas Goodman as chief financial officer, replacing Brian Lawson who will continue to serve as a director a vice chairman.
On Feb. 7 Brookfield said it had raised US$20 billion for its latest flagship infrastructure fund, including US$5 billion it had committed.
