ZACD Group is an integrated asset manager headquartered in Singapore offering integrated solutions across the real estate value chain in Singapore and the Asia-Pacific region. The Group’s subsidiary holds a Capital Market Services licence issued by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) for conducting fund management activities in Singapore. The Group also holds the Securities and Futures Commission of Hong Kong (SFC) licenses to conduct Type 1 (dealing in securities), Type 4 (advising on securities) and Type 6 (advising on corporate finance) regulated activities under the Securities and Futures Ordinance (SFO). Through its Singapore and Hong Kong offices, ZACD is driven by an experienced management team with a proven track record, execution capability and in-depth knowledge of the real estate industry.
Known for its pioneering spirit and acute business strategies, ZACD has a reputation for identifying and seizing market opportunities before others to capture the first mover advantages ahead of the economic cycles. ZACD has a proven track record of having structured and managed numerous real estate investments. Through its investment management services, ZACD has achieved satisfactory investment returns for their investors to date.
In pursuit of capturing global opportunities for its clients, the group is embarking on its expansion into the Asia-Pacific region. Key strategies include further expanding our investment management business by widening our investor network and to enhance our deal sourcing capabilities.
Our Founders, Mr. Yeo and Ms Sim seized the opportunity in 2003 where they founded SLP International Property Consultants (“SLP International”).
Building on this foundation, Mr. Yeo and Ms Sim saw that there was huge potential in Singapore’s real estate development scene and in 2005, ZACD Investments was established to invest jointly with developers into developments.
As ZACD’s reputation grew, ZACD worked with more developers in joint venture partnerships and subsequently increased its stakes in such projects. Thus, besides enhancing our financial base, there was a need to provide value-added expertise in the entire development process and in January 2011, ZACD’s real estate development project consultancy and management firm, ZACD International, was established. ZACD provides a range of consultancy services that ranges from advising on land tender strategies and unit mix, design and layout of real estate projects, and advising on market positioning of property developments, sale launches, including handover and property defects management services. Our clients include real estate developers, MCSTs as well as property owners. ZACD’s commitment to deliver professional and innovative real estate solutions, coupled with an emphasis on trust and forming strong partnerships assisted developers such as Qingjian, a Chinese firm engaged in the property development and construction business, to establish a resounding presence in the Executive Condominium market.
After achieving satisfactory investment returns for our investors from our projects, many investors approached ZACD for consultations and knowledge on investing in the Singapore property market. ZACD was able to harness an ever-growing pool of accredited investors who shared a common investment philosophy set by Mr. Yeo. ZACD’s main focus was to share win-win investment opportunities largely based on real estate with the core objective of growing the clients’ wealth and enabling them to be informed partners rather than passive investors. As ZACD’s pool of investors grew, Mr. Yeo aspired to professionalise the investment management platform. Hence, in October 2011, ZACD’s investment management unit, ZACD Capital, was established. It has since grown from a Registered Fund Management Company in November 2012 to obtaining the Capital Markets Services license for Fund Management issued by MAS in September 2016.
To further extend ZACD’s suite of real estate services beyond that of consultancy and management of development projects, ZACD POSH was established in November 2016 to cater to the needs of the developed assets and its end users. As such, ZACD POSH provides specialised property management and asset management services which includes maintenance management services, accounting and financial services, administrative services, property maintenance work, rental management, lease advisory services and tenants care management.
In pursuit of capturing global opportunities for our clients, ZACD embarked on its Asia Pacific expansion with the commencement of its business in Hong Kong in February 2017, after obtaining licences to conduct Type 1(dealing in securities), Type 4 (advising on securities) and Type 6 (advising on corporate finance) regulated activities under the SFO to develop our marketing and distribution network and fundraising efforts and develop our corporate financial advisory business in Hong Kong.
Today ZACD has transformed into an integrated asset manager specialising in real estate. ZACD’s horizon has grown beyond its real estate heritage towards offering clients integrated solutions across the real estate value chain. Built upon a sustainable business model with a proven track record, ZACD will continue to empower the success of its clients based on its three core values of trust, partnerships and transparency.
