The SC Capital Partners Group (SCCP) is an employee-owned, Pan- Asian real estate investment management firm with over $6.1bn in assets under management across five discretionary closed-end opportunistic funds, one discretionary core/core-plus fund and two listed REITs.
The SCCP platform was founded in 2004 with its flagship Real Estate Capital Asia Partners (RECAP) series of discretionary opportunistic real estate funds. The funds are focused on value creation through refurbishing, repositioning and operating real estate assets that are under-managed or from distressed sellers, in areas where market inefficiencies and strong macroeconomic fundamentals yield attractive opportunities. RECAP’s investments are concentrated on physical assets such as residential, office, retail, warehouses and hotel properties.
In 2016, the group launched a discretionary open-ended fund (SCORE ) investing in core to core-plus assets in the gateway cities of Asia Pacific. The fund offers investors stable and resilient income growth and long-term capital appreciation by investing in incomeproducing assets such as office, retail, residential, logistics and other similar assets.
SCCP also manages two listed REITs, namely Japan Hotel REIT (www.jhrth.co.jp/en/), which is the largest hospitality REIT in Asia and TPrime REIT (http://en.tprimereit.com/) in Thailand. The 43 members of SCCP’s discretionary RECAP and SCORE funds have proven expertise across the Asia Pacific region, averaging 17 years of professional experience in Asia and 16 years in the real estate industry. Led by Chairman Suchad Chiaranussati and Managing Directors Ian Lien, Andrew Heithersay and Freddy Chua, the group’s pan-Asian reach and local presence create unique capabilities to conduct due diligence and execute its strategies in local currencies, languages and jurisdictions. The team has raised $2.8bn in discretionary capital commitments (as of 31 October 2018) from institutional investors across both the RECAP and SCORE funds.
