AIQ Global manages the most prestigious, luxury residential development projects in Kuala Lumpur, all financed by private equity.
In recent years, Malaysia's economy has been among the most resilient in the world, with GDP growth hovering around 6%.
Kuala Lumpur's population is increasing by 50% every 20 years, making it among the fastest-growing cities in the world.
The Ringgit is one of the most undervalued currencies in the world. According to the July 2012 Economist Big Mac Index, it is undervalued by 41% in comparison to the US Dollar.
Malaysian property gains taxes are competitive, currently 0-15% of the gain, depending on the holding period.
Malaysia affords non-National Asians among the most liberal property-ownership regulations in the region with the process of liberalisation continuing.
Development margins are strong due to the increasing real estate requirements of a rapidly-growing and increasingly-wealthy population.
We have transacted over US$50m of prime residential property in Kuala Lumpur and understand our niche market well.
AIQ Global's design team knows the local market. 9 out of 10 of our developments sold during the 2008 global financial crisis were sold within 2 months of marketing.
Equipped with cinemas, swimming pools, lifts, gymnasiums, state-of-the-art technology, each villa is completely unique and unrivaled in quality.
Since 2006, AIQ Global has completed developments with a total value of US$25m. Two-third of the developments were sold during the time of the global financial crisis, yet the average returns for the projects have been 35%.
With pro-active, efficient and experienced project management, our developments are completed in two-third the time required by similar developments.
The real estate sector is the most stable segment of an exceptionally firm market in Malaysia and our villas are built in the most desirable areas of Kuala Lumpur.
Each of AIQ Global's developments is owned by a separate special-purpose company in which investors buy shares, to ring-fence each investment.
We provide monthly, audited, online investor updates which include scanned copies of receipts, bank statements, photos, and all significant agreements.
Investor reports are audited and signed by chartered accountants Sundar & Co., and the investments are audited anually by Crowe Horwath AF, the 5th largest accounting firm in Malaysia.
