Creating an Asia-Pacific platform
Logistics is a real estate asset class that benefits from cross-border networks. A network across different markets enables an operator to enhance the service to its tenant customers and leverage experience and best practices. The benefits are even more pronounced when operating in emerging markets.
With a strategy to create an Asia-Pacific network, MAM worked closely with LOGOS to expand the business beyond Australia and China into a further six countries over the course of its investment.
To support this expanded presence, LOGOS grew its offices from two to 13 across eight countries, building a network of connected teams. These connections enable LOGOS to share knowledge, experiences, best practices and culture across each of its locations and maximise the real estate solutions it offers both its tenant customers and capital partners.
A successful partnership
MAM partnered with LOGOS to gain exposure to asset and development management expertise in the logistics real estate sector. The partnership enabled LOGOS to focus on the delivery of high-quality real estate solutions across its existing and new markets while MAM focused on other initiatives to accelerate the growth and maturity of the business.
As part of the partnership, MAM led the expansion of LOGOS across new markets and the formation of joint-ventures to grow the business in Southeast Asia, China and India. As the business grew, MAM focused on organisational design and enhancing operations as staff numbers increased to 225 and best practises were developed around work health and safety, workplace diversification and sustainability.
To fund this growth, MAM managed the capital structure of the business and raised over $A5.3 billion of equity commitments from some of the world’s most sophisticated investors across 16 LOGOS-managed ventures.
The close working relationship and complimentary expertise between LOGOS and MAM has established a leading Asia-Pacific logistics real estate group in just over five years.
