Eastern Capital Fund Manager, John Fermont confirmed that Singaporean Investor, Keppel Land, bought their 130, 000sq feet freehold building, located at 26 William Street, London, EC4.

However, it is four years later and we have new strategies in place and at present the building does not feature in our long term planning and investment strategies. It was time to sell and we wisk Keppel Land all the best in its endeavor into the city office market.”
