A passion to serve the community

Warees Investments develops and transforms real estate assets to unlock and maximize its potential for the betterment of the Muslim community in Singapore.

Get to Know


Wholly owned by the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (Muis), Warees Investments Pte Ltd manages a dynamic endowment portfolio with a strategy driven by its vision of ‘Sustainable Assets, Nurturing Generations’.

Through the years, Warees has emerged as a reputable real estate firm in the region through its excellent track record in property development and specialised services on endowment investment management. With each new project, Warees continues to set good standards not just in Singapore, but beyond through regional capacity building and collaborations.

Our Values


We want to preserve legacies and equity, defined by our vision: Sustainable Assets, Nurturing Generations.

Sustainable Assets

We develop professionals and manage strategic asset resources productively. Thus, improving the lives of beneficiaries and preserving legacies for future generations.

Our Brand


The design of the “W” symbolises both the fountain and a tree. As a fountain, the design embodies energy; it is also symbolic of life and purification. The use of the tree in the logo is a universally recognisable symbol that represents growth, strength, and abundance.

The mosaic base of the logo is built up of several blocks that symbolizes Warees’ staff, stakeholders, and members of the Community, all of whom have contributed to Warees’ transformative path to become a niche asset management firm that serves the Community.
