Supported by the Crowe network, we aim to identify companies and real estate assets that will benefit from being listed in Singapore. As part of our future plans, we will explore applying to be a Catalist sponsor which will allow us to undertake IPOs on the SGX Catalist and be a continuing sponsor for Catalist-listed companies.”
