Major cities across Asia & Europe


Thematic, specialized data centre properties platform and developer, dedicated to serving hyperscale cloud providers and leading data centre operators with a focus in Asia Pacific & Europe



Stratus was founded in 2016 as a partnership between EXS and an expert data centre management team led by Nigel Clarkson, who has over 20 years of experience in data centre investments & developments

Stratus has worked with a number of global investors to identify and secure exclusive access to data centre projects and tenants through existing relationships, with capability to provide comprehensive products that meet its customers’ needs


Stratus is not a data centre operator and does not compete with tenants in colocation/cloud business. Stratus aims to be the long-term property partner of its clients, leverage its expertise in sourcing sites outside their home markets, securing power & planning, and developing build-to-suit data centres (powered shells) in multiple locations across Asia Pacific, Europe & Africa, achieving true “resource augmentation” for global hyperscalers and DC operators

Project Arsenal


Tokyo, Japan



Takeover of listed Tokyo residential REIT & REIT manager



The residential's sponsor was badly hurt by the 2008-09 downturn in the Japanese property sector and was perceived as "weak"

As a result, the REIT units were trading badly, and punitive interest rates were imposed on the REIT debt by the bank  


While several other parties were interested in taking over the REIT, EXS successfully worked with the REIT sponsor’s CEO and senior management to close a deal where an activist investor acquired a large portion of the REIT units from the REIT sponsor and other investors to acquire an effective controlling stake
