Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Link REIT has expanded its investment mandate, and can now invest in assets beyond office and retail properties.

Link REIT is the first real estate investment trust listed in Hong Kong, and is currently Asia’s largest REIT by market capitalisation.

Its portfolio primarily consists of retail and office properties across Hong Kong and mainland China.

In 2019, the REIT made its inaugural purchase outside Greater China by acquiring 100 Market Street in Sydney, Australia.
