Oxley's executive chairman and chief executive, Ching Chiat Kwong, said that the funds raised will put the firm in a good position to seize opportunities arising from a recovering property market in Singapore.

He flagged several significant acquisitions the firm has made in the last few months, including properties in ex-Housing and Urban Development Company estates, such as Rio Casa and Serangoon Ville.

Shares in Oxley closed at S$0.66 on Tuesday, up 0.5 of a Singapore cent.
