We believe PCRT will set the stage for the building of a more vibrant marketplace for more Manager-sponsored trusts in Singapore," said Mr Pua Seck Guan, Chief Executive Officer, Perennial China Retail Trust Management Pte. Ltd

It joins the growing rank of businesses with property and substantial assets that are leveraging on our REITs and Business Trust structure as a capital-raising avenue.
