Company Profile

Headquartered in Singapore and Yangon (Myanmar), Myanmar Strategic Holdings (“MSH”) is a foreign-owned operator and investor in Myanmar, one of the fastest growing economies in the world.

MSH’s earliest investments were made in the hospitality market, starting in August 2014, with the acquisition of the development and management rights of Ostello Bello Bagan, a boutique hotel located in Bagan, one of the leading tourist destinations in Myanmar. The Group’s hospitality division has since expanded and currently operates 472 beds across four locations.

In 2016, MSH diversified into the education market by acquiring the rights from Pearson to open language centres under the Wall Street English brand in Myanmar. The first English language centre was opened in February 2017 in the commercial capital, Yangon, and spans over 800 square metres and five floors. Following a strong response from the first centre, the Group secured a second location in Yangon and opened a 600 sqm centre in November 2017.  A third location in Myanmar Plaza opened in August 2018.

To match rising demand for engineers and technicians in Myanmar, MSH signed a joint-venture agreement with Auston Institute of Management, a leading private engineering institution in Singapore, to run foundation and diploma programs in Myanmar. The institution in Yangon is branded as Auston College and the campus opened in May 2018.

In August 2019, Yangon American International School opened its doors for the first time, with the aim to deliver international quality schooling in Yangon. The Group’s vision is to offer a best-in-class learning curriculum in modern facilities that is accredited by internationally recognised organisations. YAIS is located in Hlaing Township along Yangon – Insein Road. The campus offers over 2,500 sqm of learning space and an additional 1,000+ sqm of playground space.

In 2018, MSH expanded into the security risk management market by acquiring Exera, one of the leading security service providers in Myanmar.  The Group is focused on expanding Exera’s service offering by building a cash-in-transit business along international standards.
