Clifton Partners Pte Ltd (“Clifton”) is a real estate investment firm specialising in property investments with a focus on prime Asian real estate, particularly in Singapore.
Since our inception in 2011, we have an established track record of investing in high-quality investments at an opportune time. With intimate knowledge of local real estate, and the strong backing of industry experience and expertise, we have a firm grasp of the Singapore market. While our expertise spans the full range of property sectors, we have invested mainly in conservation shophouses since 2012 with a portfolio size of approximately S$750 million.
By combining brick-and-mortar real estate expertise with active asset management and up-to-the-minute knowledge of the local property market, we are able to consistently generate superior returns by unlocking property value for our shareholders. We believe in the long-term value proposition of real estate in Asia, especially in urban, infill, and supply-constrained locations such as Singapore.
We pride ourselves in being fast moving and adaptable. By responding efficiently to investment opportunities that arise and being extremely diligent with our analysis, we are able to consistently find properties with compelling risk-reward returns. Sticking to our work ethic and attention to detail in executing our investment and asset management strategies gives us confidence that we should continue to deliver attractive returns for our shareholders.
