Through this platform, we can call upon a professional and experienced team of operations, project and asset managers who work closely and seamlessly with each other to:

Innovative Asset Enhancement Initiatives

Creative asset planning unlocks the potential value of CMT's malls to further propel growth by enhancing the retail environment and improving the attractiveness of our malls to shoppers and retailers. Diverse ways of increasing the yield and productivity of CMT's retail space include:

Inviting Experiences

To stay ahead of consumer trends, we constantly reinvent the retail experience with innovative shopping, dining and entertainment combinations, which help to maximise the sales of the tenants and generate growth through improved rental income. The increase in shopper traffic is generated through:

Instrumental Investments

The ability to identify value-adding acquisitions, investments and greenfield development projects to add to the portfolio and further enhance its value is central to CMT's long-term sustainable growth.

Our investments must satisfy the investment criteria of:

CMT's 14.11% interest in CapitaLand Retail China Trust provides some exposure to the growth in the China retail real estate market without significantly changing the asset profile of CMT.

Intensive Capital & Risk Management

We seek to optimise returns to Unitholders while maintaining a strong capital base and credit rating to support CMT's growth.

Regular assessments of capital management policies are undertaken to ensure that they are adaptable to changes in economic conditions and the risk characteristics of CMT. We also monitor our exposures to various risk elements by closely adhering to well-established management policies and procedures.

As part of our proactive capital management, we diversify our sources of funding and will continue to review our debt profile to reduce refinancing risk.
