The vehicle, GLP China Income Partners I, marks the Singapore-based company's third fund dedicated to recycling capital in China. The fund is backed by a group of leading domestic institutional investors, with GLP China acting as the fund and asset manager, the firm announced.

GLP CIP I will be the third vehicle to recycle capital in China and it is expected to invest in around three million square meters of modern logistics assets in prominent locations in approximately 20 cities across China.

Teresa Zhuge, Executive Vice Chairman of GLP China, said: "The establishment of GLP China Income Partners I is consistent with GLP's strategy to further expand its fund management platform through establishing new funds and increasing its capital recycling initiatives.
