“While other areas within commercial real estate have been impacted by the ongoing pandemic, medical real estate has demonstrated considerable resiliency.

“With a now formidable foundation in place, we are in a great position to pursue further opportunities to expand AMRE as we continue to execute on our strategic growth plans.”

DSS Securities, a wholly owned subsidiary of DSS, provided a loan of $0.8m to AMRE for the acquisition.

Additionally, AMRE received a loan of $13.9m from American Pacific Bancorp, a majority-owned subsidiary of DSS.

AMRE focuses on acquiring and leasing a portfolio of licenced medical real estate. Apart from DSS, it is backed by Alset International Limited.
