Morningstar Quantitative ratings for equities (denoted on this page by) are generated using an algorithm that compares companies that are not under analyst coverage to peer companies that do receive analyst-driven ratings. Companies withratings are not formally covered by a Morningstar analyst, but are statistically matched to analyst-rated companies, allowing our models to calculate a quantitative moat, fair value, and uncertainty rating.

Henderson Land Development, or HLD, is a leading property developer in Hong Kong with a focus on urban redevelopment and farmland conversion. The company was founded in 1976, listed in 1981. Founder Lee Shau Kee is the controlling shareholder, and a series of disposals in December 2017 reduced his stake to below 73%. The share disposals were the first since 1993, lessening the possibility of a privatization effort. Lee stepped down in May 2019, succeeded by his two sons as joint chairmen and managing directors. HLD also controls several listed entities, including a 33.4% stake in Hong Kong Ferry, a 69.3% stake in Henderson Investment, a 41.5% stake in Hong Kong and China Gas, and a 50% stake in Miramar Hotel & Investment.
