Referring to Boustead Projects Limited’s media release, Mr Wong Yu Wei, Executive Deputy Chairman of Boustead Projects said, “351 on Braddell is the first property to be injected into the Boustead Industrial Fund (BIF) after its successful launch in March 2021. This transaction represents our ongoing strategy to grow BIF through the injection of stabilised assets and demonstrates our deep commitment as a strong Sponsor. This sale will also allow Boustead Projects to continue to develop its new fund management business capabilities, maintain disciplined capital recycling and build recurring income streams.”
Kenneth Szeto comments, “We are proud to support our longstanding client BPL on the 351 Braddell project, right from the initial land site acquisition tender, through to the land and construction loan facilities to finance the project, and now this strategic divestiture to BIF.
