Company Background

CapitaLand is the largest real estate developer in Southeast Asia. It was established in 2000 through a merger of DBS Land and Pidemco Land, two government-linked real estate developers in Singapore. Temasek Holdings, Singapore's sovereign wealth fund, has a nearly 40% share. CapitaLand is led by President and Group CEO Lim Ming Yan, who took over in early 2013. Lim was CEO of CapitaLand China Holdings from 2000 to 2009, during which time he drove major development in China.

About 80% of CapitaLand's assets are in Singapore and China, where the company plans to expand further. Its strength is developing different types of properties, such as apartments, offices and shopping malls, as a single project. CapitaLand owns and operates The Ascott, the world's largest chain of international serviced apartments. It also has five publicly listed real estate investment trusts and more than a dozen real estates private equity funds under its umbrella. The company recently privatized CapitaMalls Asia and delisted it from the Singapore Exchange as a part of restructuring. It sold its Australian unit Australand Property Group.
