Real Estate Management Services

As part of ARA’s investor-operator philosophy, we operate our own real estate management services, which comprises APM Property Management and Suntec Singapore. This provides us with strategic control over our assets, including the ability to create and value add to our properties over time and deliver long-term sustainable returns to our investors.

ARA Property Management (APM)

APM is the property management arm of ARA and it provides property management services for various asset classes across different geographies in Asia Pacific. The team’s strengths lie in strategic marketing, retail and office leasing, as well as large-scale project management, development planning and mall repositioning.

Suntec Singapore

Suntec Singapore manages the Suntec Singapore International Convention & Exhibition Centre. It comprises a team of highly-driven and dedicated professionals with extensive local, regional and international experience in managing and hosting world-class events.

In all aspects of our operations, ARA seeks to incorporate successful sustainability practices and digitalisation initiatives.
