Keppel Land is the property arm of the Keppel Group, one of Singapore's largest multinational groups with key businesses in offshore and marine, property, infrastructure and investments.
One of Asia's premier property companies, Keppel Land is recognised for its sterling portfolio of award-winning residential developments and investment-grade commercial properties as well as high standards of corporate governance and transparency.
Keppel Land was privatised and delisted from the Singapore Stock Exchange with effect from 16 July 2015. A selective capital reduction exercise to cancel all outstanding shares held by minority shareholders of Keppel Land was approved at an extraordinary general meeting on 13 April 2016 and the court on 5 May 2016.
The Company is geographically diversified in Asia, with Singapore and China as its core markets as well as Vietnam and Indonesia as its growth markets. Keppel Land focuses on a two-pronged strategy of property development for sale and property fund management. The Company's total assets amounted to about $14.9 billion as at 31 December 2015. Keppel Land was ranked fourth in the prestigious Corporate Knights' Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World 2015, placing it first in Asia and among real estate companies worldwide. Keppel Land was a component of the Dow Jones Sustainability World and Asia Pacific Indices, as well as the Morgan Stanley International Global Sustainability and Socially Responsible Indices prior to its delisting.
As a leading prime office developer in Singapore, Keppel Land contributes to enhancing the city's skyline with landmark developments such as Marina Bay Financial Centre and Ocean Financial Centre.

Its portfolio includes Seasons City in the Sino-Singapore Tianjin Eco-City, Life Hub @ Jinqiao, Park Avenue Central in Shanghai, China, Saigon Centre in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, as well as International Financial Centre Jakarta in Indonesia. The Company plans to expand the SM-KL Project in the Philippines and develop Junction City Tower in Yangon, Myanmar. Beyond Asia, Keppel Land has acquired an office building in London, the United Kingdom.
To strengthen the Company's retail capabilities, Keppel Land has acquired a 75% stake in retail management company Array Real Estate, which has been renamed Keppel Land Retail Management. Keppel Land is Asia's premier home developer with world-class iconic waterfront residences at Keppel Bay and Marina Bay in Singapore. The Company has also ventured into the United States with a residential development in Manhattan, New York. With a pipeline of about 70,000 homes in Singapore and overseas as well as an increasing commercial presence in the region, Keppel Land is well-positioned to meet the growing demands for quality residential, office and mixed-use developments.
