About Us

At a glance

Established in November 2018, Mitbana (ミツ バナ ) is a joint venture company of Mitsubishi Corporation (MC) from Japan, and Surbana Jurong (SJ) from Singapore. Recognising the vast opportunities offered by a rapidly urbanising population in Asia, Mitbana was formed to champion urban development projects in ASEAN (primarily Indonesia, Vietnam, Myanmar & the Philippines) and South Asia (primarily India & Sri Lanka). The partnership synergises MC’s financial experience in real estate investments and SJ’s technical capabilities in urban & infrastructure planning, with an aim of crowding-in urgently needed capital to catalyse urban developments across Asia.

Mitbana’s investment mandate covers the following sectors:

  1. Transit-oriented developments;
  2. Township developments; and
  3. Urban-related infrastructure associated with these developments.

Mitbana’s (ミツ バナ ) name (pronounced “Mit-bana” in English, or “Mitsu-bana” in Japanese) is derived from combining the names of the company’s shareholders. The meaning behind Mitbana’s logo is encapsulated in the following infographic:
