ABOUT US

Warees Investments Pte Ltd is one of the region’s premier endowment asset management companies, and is responsible for the development of prime commercial and residential properties as well as the conservation of culture and heritage. As an investment holding company, Warees thrives on managing endowments and institutional real estate portfolio and several subsidiaries while safeguarding and creating value for the community and its social beneficiaries.

Wholly owned by the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (Muis), its hallmark sustainable framework features an integrated and dynamic endowment portfolio strategy driven by its vision of ‘Sustainable Assets. Nurturing Generations’. Through the years, Warees has emerged as a reputable real estate firm in the region through its excellent track record in property development and specialised services on endowment investment management. With each new project, Warees continues to set good standards not just in Singapore, but beyond through regional capacity building and collaborations.

Warees is the acronym for WAkafREalEState. Waris, as pronounced in Malay means ‘heritage’ and ‘beneficiary’, both of which are closely related to the management of trust properties. The logo is an expression of the letter ‘W’ and symbolises both a fountain and a tree. The fountain with its inflow and outflow of water reflects a sense of giving and receiving, while the tree represents growth, strength, shelter and nature. The rectangular box symbolises a solid and firm foundation.

Our company profile is also available in Arabic and Malay.
