Our Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) practice is widely recognised as the pioneer and market leader in the REIT, business trust and private property fund space in Singapore. We have an extensive and unparalleled track record of overseeing the successful completion of numerous ground-breaking and innovative transactions involving various sectors of real estate and infrastructure.

Our expertise covers the entire range of capital market and financing arrangements in the REITs and business trust space. To date, we have been involved in almost all of the initial public offerings, introductions, listings, secondary offerings and medium term note/convertible bond issues by Singapore REITs and property business trusts. We have also advised on their subsequent acquisition of assets and funding activities. We are involved in highly complex and novel transactions, including hybrid/structured products, perpetual securities as well as Shariah compliant REITs and private funds.

Our clients include large property developers, local and multinational corporations, government-linked entities, banks, financial institutions, global property funds, corporate trustees and accredited/institutional investors. We are also regularly consulted by regulators, industry bodies and leading players with regard to reviewing or enhancing the relevant regulatory or legislative regime.
