Kishore KJ Buxani

Founder & Chief Executive Officer

Kishore KJ Buxani is the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Buxani Group. Focussing predominantly on Singapore commercial real estate, Kishore has built a formidable reputation as a successful and shrewd hands-on investor who creates value through the acquisition of underperforming properties in prime locations.

Kishore worked at Goldman Sachs for almost ten years from 1996 to 2005, and was an Executive Director in the company’s Singapore Investment Management Group. He was responsible for building an investment business with over USD 1.1 billion of assets under management from Asian corporates, family offices and high-net worth family groups. With over twenty years of real estate and global investment experience, Kishore has developed an exceptional understanding of global capital markets and built a strong network of contacts within the local and international real estate and financial services industry.

Kishore began investing personally in commercial real estate while working for Goldman Sachs, focusing on distressed commercial properties during late 2000s after the tech bubble burst drove a fall in Singapore property prices. Initially, Kishore found value among strata commercial shops located in prime malls, and later in conserved shophouse buildings. Buxani Group was then established as a private investment company for the purpose of consolidating all his personal holdings.

Kishore’s entrepreneurial instincts and anticipation of the bottoming out of Singapore’s real estate market inspired him to make the decision to leave his successful investment role at Goldman Sachs in April 2005. It was then that Kishore began to concentrate his efforts, time and expertise on larger investments and building the successful real estate investment and management company we see today.
