Keppel Infrastructure Trust (KIT), Singapore’s largest diversified business trust, announced today the launch of its new corporate brand identity. The change marks KIT’s 10th anniversary since its listing on the Singapore Exchange, as well as the Trust’s growth and evolution. The shades of blue in the logo convey stability, trust and confidence, with the light blue arrow signifying growth and expansion.
Listed in 2010 as K-Green Trust, the Trust was one of the first listed entities in Singapore with a mandate to invest in “green” infrastructure assets. K-Green Trust was subsequently renamed KIT in 2014 as it expanded its investment mandate to cover a wider range of infrastructure assets. KIT then combined with CitySpring Infrastructure Trust in 2015 and renewed its investment focus to seek out key infrastructure businesses and assets globally. To date, KIT has grown its assets under management from $730 million to more than $5 billion.
“Over the past decade, we are proud that KIT has evolved to become the largest diversified business trust in Singapore, growing from an initial portfolio of three assets to eight businesses and assets today. As we position the Trust for the future, we have refreshed the logo to better reflect KIT’s brand character as the trusted vehicle for infrastructure investments,” said Mr Koh Ban Heng, Chairman of Keppel Infrastructure Fund Management (KIFM), the Trustee-Manager of KIT.
Mr Matthew Pollard, CEO of KIFM, added, “At its core, KIT’s intrinsic value proposition remains unique within the investment universe. We invest in and own a well-diversified portfolio of strategic businesses and assets, to deliver stable and recurring distributions with the added potential for long-term capital growth. Our refreshed brand identity represents the Trust’s growth and reflects our drive to keep pursuing new growth opportunities and expanding our reach.”
KIT’s most recent strategic acquisition was Ixom, a leading industrial infrastructure business in Australia and New Zealand, which strengthened KIT’s portfolio. Ixom supplies and distributes water treatment chemicals, as well as essential industrial and specialty chemicals to a broad range of global industries. Its acquisition complements the existing assets within KIT’s portfolio, in the Distribution & Network, Energy and Waste & Water industries, and expands KIT’s presence in Australia and New Zealand.
