Environmental, Social and Governance

ARA strives to achieve sustainability and a positive ethical impact on the societies that we operate in. Our sustainability philosophy guides how we make business decisions and execute our business plans, and how we engage and interact with our stakeholders.

We believe that a successful corporation is not only defined by its business needs and achievements, but also by the positive role that it can play in the community. We strive not only to be a leading APAC real assets fund manager with a global reach but also one that does the right thing and places our investors’ interests as a priority: by conducting our business in a responsible and sustainable manner, caring for our people, and sharing our skills and success with the community that we live and operate in.

Good corporate citizenship is fundamental to ARA and over the years; we have accelerated our efforts in contributing to our community and paying forward through our multiple initiatives. Our long-standing commitment includes driving our business for sustainable growth and success, supporting philanthropy through volunteerism and charity, taking care of our people, as well as respecting and preserving our environment.
