Daejan Holdings is a leading British-based property business. It is headquartered in London and is a constituent of the FTSE 250 Index.


The Company was formed in 1935 as Daejan Samoedra Estates Ltd to acquire rubber and coffee plantations in the Dutch East Indies.[2] In 1949 an insurrection led to the destruction or sale of its plantations.[2] In 1957 Osias Freshwater reversed his property business into the company and this is now its sole activity.[2]


The Group is organised into two geographic segments - UK and USA - of the same activity - investment properties. As at 31 March 2013 its portfolio was valued at £1.4bn.[1]
