ESR REIT Management

ESR REIT Management is a specialized logistics real estate asset manager with
in-depth knowledge and market insight,
enabling us to maximize unitholder value.


ESR REIT Management Ltd. ("ESRRM") was established in May, 2016 as a subsidiary of ESR, with the aim to provide asset management services to a logistics oriented REIT. ESR is one of the leading "pure-play" pan-Asia logistics real estate platforms, focused on identifying and delivering integrated, value-added logistics warehousing solutions to maximize its customers' logistics efficiency and support their further expansion in each of their target markets.

ESR was formed through the merger of e-Shang and Redwood Group in January 2016. The founders of Redwood are considered pioneers in the development of institutional-quality warehouses in Japan. e-Shang, co-founded by an affiliate of Warburg Pincus LLC and two highly successful Chinese entrepreneurs, grew to become one of the main developers, owners and operators of modern logistics facilities in China, with an emerging business in South Korea.

The modern warehousing industry in Asia has witnessed robust development driven by the rapid growth in e-commerce, greater supply chain efficiencies and consolidation by third party logistics providers. To remain globally competitive, warehousing and logistics industries are looking for artificial intelligence robotics solutions which will lead to widespread acceptance and presence of robots in warehouses and logistics operations. Lots of opportunities will arise during this period of significant innovation in the logistics space which will positively influence the direction ESR is heading.

Following our corporate business principles, ESRRM remains fully committed towards upholding the utmost standards of accountability to our unitholders. We work towards fostering good, long-term relationships so as to provide unitholders with a competitive rate of return on their investment.
