Swire Properties will continue looking for investment opportunities to expand its presence on the mainland even as Beijing imposes tougher measures to deal with a property bubble.

Gordon Ongley, the chief executive of Swire Properties, said the central government's regulations had little impact on the firm.

In November last year, Beijing warned it would crack down on speculation in property and land values. And by the end of last month, Shanghai and Guangzhou had introduced stricter policies to prevent developers from hoarding sites in order to boost home prices.
