CapitaLand Investment strengthens investment bench strength with key appointments in Japan and China

SINGAPORE - April 3, 2023 - PRLog -- CapitaLand Investment Limited (CLI) will strengthen its senior management and investment bench strength with two key appointments in Japan and China.  CLI has appointed Mr Hideto Yamada as Managing Director for Japan from 17 April 2023, and Ms Kara Wang as Chief Investment Officer (CIO) for CLI China from 5 May 2023.

Mr Yamada will succeed Mr Tan Lai Seng, who will relinquish his position and be appointed as Advisor to CLI Japan.  Under Mr Tan's stewardship, his team has grown Japan into a focus market for CLI, with S$4.1 billion of assets under management (AUM).  He built a strong portfolio of fee income-generating products across multiple asset classes including expanding CLI's footprint into the logistics sector.

A veteran in Japan's real estate sector, Mr Yamada will lead the CLI Japan team into its next phase of growth.  His principal priorities will be to further develop CLI's partnership with its onshore capital partners, actively grow CLI's funds under management (FUM) for its private, public and lodging funds, and to identify strategic merger and acquisition opportunities.

As a senior member of the CLI China leadership team, Ms Wang will be instrumental in enhancing CLI's position in China, a core market for CLI.  She will spearhead direct investments for CLI China's onshore and offshore fund products to deliver sustainable FUM growth, develop the Group's onshore capital markets capabilities, and drive inorganic platform acquisitions.  Ms Wang will also be CLI's country representative for Hong Kong, and work to expand CLI's network of business and capital partners in the Special Administrative Region.

Mr Andrew Lim, Group Chief Operating Officer (COO), CLI said: "I am delighted to welcome Hideto and Kara to CLI.  Hideto is a highly regarded real estate executive in Japan with over 40 years of industry experience.  His rich experience in dealmaking across global real estate markets, coupled with his extensive knowledge of Japan's real estate sector will enable CLI to accelerate our expansion in Japan, an important focus market for us."

"Kara brings a wealth of knowledge to CLI China.  She has over 20 years of experience in finance and real estate as well as an extensive network of global and Chinese investors within the regional investment community.  She will be instrumental in sharpening CLI's investment expertise and contribute to building new strategic capabilities for our business in Greater China," added Mr Lim.
