“DoubleDragon’s 4 pillars of growth in retail leasing, office leasing, industrial warehouse leasing and hotels will give the company a well-diversified real estate portfolio essential to successfully navigate the current fast-changing global business environment. We believe that gone are the days where concentration to only one or two specific sectors within the real estate industry is beneficial to the company in the long run. DoubleDragon will soon achieve its mid-term goal of 25 percent equal recurring revenue contribution for each of its four diverse pillars. Our team has been focused on putting in place the right sunrise real estate platforms which will enable DoubleDragon to become a durable company that will stand the test of time,”said DoubleDragon chairman Edgar “Injap” Sia II.
