The Group

Jardine Matheson is a diversified Asian-based group with unsurpassed experience in the region, having been founded in China in 1832. We comprise a broad portfolio of market-leading businesses, which represent a combination of cash generating activities and long-term property assets that are closely aligned to the increasingly prosperous consumers of the region.

Where we operate

We operate principally in Greater China and Southeast Asia, where our subsidiaries and affiliates benefit from the support of Jardine Matheson’s extensive knowledge of the region and its long-standing relationships.

We are always prepared to take a long-term view when supporting their development and to ensure that they have the financial resources to achieve their goals.

In our operations, which employ 440,000 people, we are active in the fields of motor vehicles and related operations, property investment and development, food retailing, home furnishings, engineering and construction, transport services, insurance broking, restaurants, luxury hotels, financial services, heavy equipment, mining and agribusiness.

Our philosophy

Our businesses aim to produce sustainable returns by providing their customers with high quality products and services. They provide good working conditions for their people, and offer fair remuneration and equal opportunities. They recognise their place in the communities in which they operate and participate fully.
