12 things I learned from the 2019 Capitaland AGM & EGM
The opening of Jewel Changi Airport has been the talk of the town recently. The new mega-mall located at Changi Airport features the tallest indoor waterfall (at 40 metres), an indoor forest, and over 280 new shops and restaurants. Jewel is 49%-owned by CapitaLand, one of Asia’s largest real estate companies, which manages a portfolio of integrated developments, shopping malls, lodging, offices, homes, real estate investment trusts (REITs) and funds worth over S$100 billion.

7 things I learned from the 2019 Ascott Residence Trust AGM
Ascott Residence Trust (Ascott REIT) is a hospitality REIT that owns a portfolio of 73 serviced residences and rental housing properties in 37 cities across Asia-Pacific, Europe, and the United States. As at 31 December 2018, Ascott REIT’s portfolio was valued at S$4.89 billion. Nowadays, companies are jumping on the bandwagon of targeting Millennials. According to Nielsen Media Research, that’s anyone between the age of 21 and 37 years old (yes, I’m a millennial too). Together we gave birth to the sharing economy. Companies like WeWork, Grab/Uber, and Kickstarter thrive on our collaborative nature, introducing concepts such as co-working, co-riding, and co-funding. It’s not revolutionary. But one thing is for sure, my ‘co-co’ generation loves it! Ascott REIT decided to

Here are three REITs that you want to keep in your watchlist if you are a value investor. Investors Takeaway: 3 REITs Value Investors Would Love Suntec REIT Since early 2018, there has been an increasing number of sell-side analysts turning bullish on Suntec REIT as the market becomes convinced of Suntec REIT’s undervaluation. This is driven by mounting evidence of a sustained turnaround at Suntec City Mall where spot office rents have been on an upward trajectory. DBS also notes that the underlying distribution per unit will continue to improve at 3-4 percent per annum.

Top 10 Singapore REITs that made you money if you invested from their IPOs (updated 2019)
In early 2017, Sabana REIT has been getting a lot of attention when a small group of unitholders moved to kick out the manager for delivering poor performance since its IPO in 2010. Early investors who bought Sabana at an IPO price of S$1.05 are now sitting on huge losses – Sabana last traded at just 41.5 cents per share at time of writing. If we look at the history, Sabana REIT isn’t alone. There are several other Singapore REITs (S-REITs) like Saizen REIT, MacarthurCook Industrial REIT and Allco REIT that have run into trouble before and caused a dent in Singapore’s REIT sector. Despite some casualties, Singapore’s REIT market remains vibrant – largely thanks to the majority of S-REITs that continue to deliver good results to income investors.

S-REIT Report Card: Here’s How Singapore REITs Performed In FY2018
The US Federal Reserve has indicated that 2019 will likely see slower interest rate hikes. This comes on the back of mounting macroeconomic uncertainties, that has seen investors turn to less risky investments. This may benefit REITs in three ways: # 1 Traditionally, REITs take on a lot of debt to fund its capital-intensive property investments. Slower interest rate hikes in 2019 will ease the growing pressure on REITs, in terms of debt repayment. # 2 Markets are efficient – which means that prices of REITs would have taken into consideration that rate hikes would continue as normal. This stance of slowing down the interest rate hikes in 2019 is new information for the market, and may give REITs a boost.

It shows genuine interests in protecting our rights as minority shareholders and they are serious about addressing investor's concerns.
