Creating value at Jardines

Jardine Matheson is a diversified family group, operating in multiple industries across our core geographies of China and ASEAN. We maintain a sustainable balance of both growth (Indonesia and Vietnam in particular) and developed markets (Hong Kong and Singapore). We have deep roots across the region and have been partnering with founders and management for 190 years to build and grow successful companies. Our Group companies serve millions of people each day and support the communities in which they operate. Today, we have over 400,000 employees and generate a gross revenue of over US$109 billion.

In this section, we take a look at Jardines’ approach to business and how we create value, both at a Group level and for our investee companies.

Throughout its long history, Jardines has successfully grown its businesses by following a series of core investment principles. We have always invested in sectors where there is strong growth, in leading companies, and with people in whom we trust.

We have also always focused on evolving our portfolio to reflect changes in the environment in which we operate and the needs of our customers, and have invested in new sectors and businesses, or divested non-core businesses and exited sectors, whenever it has been appropriate.

Our application of these principles over many years has led to the diverse portfolio we have today, and has delivered steady growth in returns, through economic cycles.
