An Incorporated Value Network

DMH&CO Parent

Daniel Mark Harrison & Co. Pte. Ltd. (DMH&CO) is the private family office of Daniel Mark Harrison, based at Suntec City in Singapore. It is managed and wholly-owned by Mr. Harrison to curate and grow the value of his personal holdings in the company.

In May 2016, Mr. Harrison converted DMH&CO from a real estate development company into a family office when he incorporated House of Harrison PLC, a United Kingdom-based public company, to manage his rapidly-growing real estate development interests acquired and developed over the previous two years.

Mr. Harrison is currently the Chairman and CEO of House of Harrison, which is Britain’s biggest residential real estate development company, boasting over $200 million in assets in provincial residential property and servicing more than 1,500 clients across the Asian continent. DMH&CO is the majority shareholder in House of Harrison and is invested in many of its subsidiary and affiliate companies.

 

Our Purpose

DMH&CO is an independently-managed network of companies across Asia which identify innovative investment opportunities and/or dynamic new capital channels through/with which above-average returns can be targeted in shorter-than-usual holding periods. The group has three offices, in Singapore, Hong Kong and Bangkok, with a London office planned for DMH&CO (Europe) PLC at the end of 2016 and further offices planned in mainland China and other countries in South East Asia next year.

Via operating under a series of Joint Venture partnerships, in which capacity the JV Partner is brought into the upper management team of the group, the group is able to remain independent while utilizing the interdependent network of the DMH&CO brand.

As a component of a Private Family Office domiciled in Singapore, the group enjoys a rare privileged status as partner to much of Asia’s wealthiest Family Offices. In reality, the market for Family Offices and Wealthy Individual Investors across the Asian region is still today highly fragmented and very relationship-driven, with brand penetration into these markets having proven to be weak and cumbersome. By empowering leading entrepreneurs throughout the region with its brand-sharing strategy, DMH&CO has been able to capture a large chunk of this capital and share in the benefits of utilizing it on an ad-hoc deal-by-deal basis without competing directly against its partners. The brand-sharing strategy DMH&CO employs is multifarious by design, and every Joint Venture investment bearing the DMH&CO brand name is individually and independently negotiated and structured according to the aims and objectives of the Partnership being entered into.

Because of DMH&CO’s sector-neutral and structure-neutral focus, the group is able to be much more elective about the quality and reputation, as well as the ability, of its partners to produce value that can be utilized by all the constituent DMH&CO entities. This has lead to a rapid expansion of the organization, with over 15 Joint Venture agreements reached and entered into in 2016 alone, all of which were profitable within their first year of operation.
