The ARA Asia Dragon Fund is ARA's flagship private fund designed to provide a
platform for global institutional investors to invest in a diversified portfolio of
real estate investments in various growth economies of Asia.
The Fund had attracted a stellar group of institutional investors, including pension
funds, endowment funds and a sovereign wealth fund. Leveraging on ARA’s experience
and intimate knowledge of the real estate market in Asia, the Fund sought to make
strategic and opportunistic investments in a diversified portfolio located across
Asia, with the goal of optimizing total returns from a combination of income and
capital appreciation. The investment mandate covered retail, office and residential
real estate primarily in the main cities of China, Singapore, Hong Kong and
Malaysia, and secondarily in other emerging economies in Asia.
