KDCR Australia Trust

The KDCR Australia Trust (the Trust) is an unregistered managed investment scheme established to invest in a diversified portfolio of income-producing real estate assets with a strong focus on data centres.

The Trust forms part of the Keppel DC Real Estate Investment Trust (Keppel DC REIT), which primarily invests in data centres in Asia Pacific and Europe. The Trust aims to generate regular and stable distributions for unit holders, as well as to achieve long-term growth while maintaining an optimal capital structure.

The three strategic elements underpinning the Trust’s objective are:

  • To proactively manage and enhance the Trust’s portfolio to achieve revenue and net income growth and maintain optimal occupancy levels;
  • To acquire quality income-producing data centre properties to enhance total return and increase opportunities for future income and capital growth; and
  • To manage interest rate volatility and foreign exchange exposure by using an appropriate mix of debt and equity in financing acquisitions, and employing hedging strategies where appropriate.
