About Us

who are we?

We are a privately-owned, independent investment firm which started out with a keen interest in private equity and debt investments into opportunistic real estate projects located in emerging markets, such as Cambodia and Malaysia. We are a Registered Fund Management Company (RFMC) regulated by MAS and is based in Singapore.

As the name suggests, Galilee refers to a northern territory in ancient Israel, where Jesus performed the miracle of walking on water in the Sea of Galilee and also multiplied the five loaves and two fishes to feed the multitudes in Capernaum, Upper Galilee. Jesus also conducted most of his ministry in Galilee, spreading the Gospel to the multitudes. Our Company is based upon the foundation of His goodness and grace, allowing us to deliver maximum long-term investment returns for our clients while helping the less fortunate around us.
