The Rising Giant

Benefiting from the Iskandar Regional Development Programme, surrounded by a habitat of lush greenery and sea, Medini offers a strategic location right in the core of Iskandar. Its proximity to Singapore (40 minutes away from the 4th largest financial centre in the world), its availability of world-class infrastructure, its connectivity in terms of transportation and network access are paramount to a highly pro-business environment.

In the short span of its existence, steady growth has been seen in the high-tech manufacturing, bio-technology, creative, medical, education and tourism hubs. Private investments have taken over public investment as the main source of funding to develop the region. This is especially evident in Medini, where capital investments have been allocated to soft infrastructure projects such as healthcare (Gleneagles Hospital), education (Educity™), lifestyle (Legoland™), and creative (Pinewood Studios).

Besides integrated infrastructures coupled with high-quality education, healthcare and other first-rate community facilities, Medini offers a high standard of living at a much lower cost in comparison with Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan and Korea. With the support of the Malaysian government, it offers development opportunities that are more cost-efficient than any other established cities in Asia.

Our Strategy

Investments in quality residential and commercial real estate have been proven to be in demand and sustainable. This presents investors at various levels with opportunities for income growth and capital appreciation.

The fund offers the opportunity to invest in Medini, Iskandar. With a land-lock of approximately 2008 acres, Medini will be the economic hub of Iskandar covering 6 key sectors (Logistics, Creative, Education, Healthcare&Wellness, Financial, Leisure&Tourism). What makes Medini appealing as an investment opportunity is its:

1. Close proximity and easy access to Singapore
2. Completed infrastructure
3. Key catalytic projects which are up and running
4. Vast incentive packages across the value chain from developers right down to end users. These incentives are a pivotal part of Malaysia’s Economic
Transformation Programme which seeks to elevate Malaysia to a high-income status by 2020.

Our approach to this fund has been to partner with a reputable and top tier developer in Malaysia – UMLand.

The project itself which is a mixed used development comprising of a Hotel, Office, Retail and Residential components is aimed to be an iconic development in the business district of the Medini.

The funds projected net return is expected to be between 20–25% IRR per annum on the investment capital.
