Croesus Retail Trust ("CRT") is the first Asia-Pacific retail business trust with an initial portfolio located in Japan listed on the Singapore Exchange.

CRT's principal investment strategy is to invest in a diversified portfolio of predominantly retail real estate assets located in Japan and across the Asia-Pacific region and real estate-related assets relating to the foregoing. The initial portfolio is located in Japan in order to create a core portfolio of stable income generating assets. This serves as a foundation for CRT to pursue development and acquisition opportunities in the Asia-Pacific region, to generate long-term capital value and long-term returns.

CRT is backed by its strategic partners Daiwa House and Marubeni who have contributed two Properties (approx. 41.1% of the Initial Portfolio based on the valuation by the independent valuer) and one Property (approx. 17.9% of the Initial Portfolio based on the valuation by the independent valuer) respectively. Both have granted CRT voluntary ROFRs to acquire further predominantly retail real estate assests across Asia-Pacific ex-Japan. Daiwa House is one of Japan's leading real estate business conglomorates while Marubeni is one of Japan's largest general trading companies.

The Trustee-Manager's key objectives are to deliver a competitive return on investment to unitholders of CRT through: (i) regular and growing distributions and (ii) long-term capital value growth of CRT's portfolio of assets.

The Sponsor of CRT is Croesus Merchants International, part of The Croesus Group
