Real estate has been traditionally considered as a local industry, although things have changed considerably in the last couple of decades. Nevertheless, people often have their concerns when it comes to offshore develops, but Singapore-listed SingHaiyi Group seems to have a role in changing the perceptions. Mr. Gordon Tang, who is the non-executive director of SingHaiyi and has stake in holding company, Haiyi Holdings, has been a major force behind acquisitions and investments in the US and in their conventional territories like China, Singapore and Malaysia.

For Mr. Tang, strategic decisions at the right time, strong partnerships and future planning have been the key elements for success, and since SingHaiyi has access to Asian capital, investments have been an easy thing. One of their first projects – The Vales in Sengkang, Singapore has been a major success, and the same kind of investment has been planned for a recently-acquired property in San Francisco Bay, California. Mr. Tang likes to gather stake in real estate investment trusts, and SingHaiyi has been doing the same for a while now. It certainly seems obvious that the group will be looking at new markets, and as per reports, Europe and Australia are on the list.
