Our focus started on student accommodation and, as interest in these projects increased, we have broadened the mandate on this fund to incorporate other types of social infrastructure such as lower-cost housing and healthcare facilities.
A strong infrastructure is the lifeblood that keeps countries and economies moving forward. From telecommunications to roads, water sanitation projects and shopping malls in economic hubs that have previously been underserviced, these facilities and structures carry the flow of commerce that help build and develop the communities whose lives they touch.
The need to protect our planet’s resources and to find new and more efficient ways to feed our growing energy needs are not only sensible strategic imperatives for any business, but also critical to help ensure the future survival of life on earth as we know it.
