About MTR

Investment in Rail-Related Projects

Outside of Hong Kong, we invest selectively in rail-related projects, including property developments, which we believe will generate sustainable returns within clear risk parameters.

Currently our subsidiaries and associates are involved in building, operating and maintaining mass transit railway systems and providing related services in the Mainland of China, the United Kingdom, Sweden and Australia. In the Mainland of China, subsidiaries and associates are also involved in the leasing of retail space, providing estate management services and developing properties.
