We create enduring value with quality investment products and platforms.

Increasing data storage needs, data sovereignty, cloud adoption and Internet of Things are amongst the drivers of strong demand growth for data centres across Asia Pacific and Europe. To tap this growing market, Keppel Capital launched the Alpha Data Centre Fund (Alpha DC Fund), a private equity vehicle to invest in the development of quality greenfield and brownfield data centre assets. When fully invested, Alpha DC Fund is expected to fund up to US$1 billion worth of data centre projects.

The Fund will collaborate with Keppel Telecommunications & Transportation (Keppel T&T) to capture investment opportunities, leveraging Keppel’s strong tenant networks, as well as its expertise in developing, operating and maintaining data centres.

In the asset creation phase, Keppel T&T will provide advisory and project management services to the Fund. When a data centre is completed, Keppel T&T will then provide operations & maintenance and facilities management services for the asset. Meanwhile, other business units in the Keppel Group, such as Keppel Infrastructure, can also benefit from providing the mission-critical power and cooling utilities as well as services to the data centre.

Once a data centre asset is mature and has been stabilised, Alpha DC Fund may then recycle its capital by injecting the asset into Keppel DC REIT, a separately-listed data centre real estate investment trust managed by Keppel Capital.

As an integrated asset manager, Keppel Capital plays a key role in collaborating with other Keppel business units to create real assets from the spectrum of urban solutions offered by the Group. This collaboration not only provides recurring fee-based income for the Group but also enables us to expand our capital base with co-investors and grow a pipeline of quality assets efficiently.
