A CKD is issued by a trusteeship and channels resources into developing sectors and infrastructure projects, in a bid to provide portfolio diversification for qualified institutional investors.

Thor Urbana plans to invest the capital raised into lifestyle retail centres and mixed-use projects across cities in Mexico with high population density.

A company spokesman said: “We will use these funds to continue developing innovative projects that change the panorama of our cities. Our goal is to add value in every aspect for those communities where our projects are located, thus creating real centers to socialise as well as experienced-filled spaces.”
