Meanwhile, RHB said CityDev’s recent efforts to recycle capital via securitization deals such as the Profit Participating Securities for the Quayside Collection and its commercial properties (Manulife Centre, 7&9 Tampines Grande and Central Mall) have also unlocked capital for the group to grow its global hotel footprints.
