Our History and Partnerships

Originally established as a joint venture between the Ayala Group of the Philippines and Richard Yue, ARCH Founder and CEO, the senior management team completed a management buy-out in 2017 and has since operated as an independently owned and managed Pan-Asian investment management firm. In 2018 and 2022, ARCH respectively entered into strategic partnerships with the Olayan Group and Manulife, with each firm acquiring a minority interest in ARCH, completing ARCH’s operational nimbleness and speed of execution with credentialed institutional sponsorship. The partnership with Manulife in particular offers investors a comprehensive investment product suite across various strategies with broadened scale and market presence.

The combined strengths of the ARCH Capital team bring together investment, real estate management, and fund administration professionals to deliver on a time-tested business model where real estate professionals manage investment capital rather than finance professionals who manage real estate. Investments are actively managed and reported on a timely and transparent basis under a robust culture of corporate governance as reflected in the Company’s (or affiliate’s) membership or participation in industry organizations (INREV, ANREV, GRESB) all the while meeting the strict regulatory and compliance requirements of the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission as a Type 4 and Type 9 Licensed Corporation and as an Exempt Foreign Advisor registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Our core strength is in identifying and unlocking values in properties through active and direct asset management within a fully integrated in-house team and local knowledge in each market that we operate in.
