Market overview and CEO commentary:
Reini Otter, Chief Executive Officer, Frasers Property Industrial says that the company’s continued growth and strong results reflect the effectiveness of its long-term strategy of unlocking value within its portfolio.
“Sustained growth in the industrial and logistics sector continues to be fuelled by extremely strong tenant demand from the growth in e-commerce, which is driving low vacancy rates and rental growth in key markets across Europe and Australia. Institutional demand for industrial assets also continues to increase and drive yield compression,” said Mr Otter.
“Harnessing these industry drivers, we’ve embedded our strategy of developing quality, future-ready industrial and logistics facilities in the past year. We’ve more than doubled our assets under management within the past two years and recently announced our industry-first Premium Estates concept that will create next-generation industrial estates. This concept brings together leading innovations in wellbeing, sustainability and technology, and supports our net-zero carbon by 2030 target.
“Building on our current S$751 million (€478 million) development pipeline, we’re rapidly investing in Europe to establish a strong market position there and unlock opportunities for our customers that benefit from our multi-national reach.”
