Frasers Logistics & Industrial Trust has agreed to buy Frasers Commercial Trust in a US$1.54 billion deal, giving it greater ammunition to make acquisitions amid a spate of consolidation among Singapore’s real estate investment trusts (Reits).
Combined, the group will have about US$5.7 billion of assets from 98 properties totaling 2.6 million square metres of space across Singapore, Australia, and Europe, including warehouses, offices, and business parks.
