6 things I learned from the 2020 Mapletree Logistics Trust AGM
Mapletree Logistics Trust (MLT) is a pure play pan-Asian logistics REIT whose properties are built according to modern building specifications. Warehouses used to be just another ‘boring’ property class. But with the rise of e-commerce, warehouses are given a new lease of life as they can now ride this secular growth opportunity. MLT appears to be relatively untouched by COVID-19 as rental income from e-commerce companies continue to stream in during this crisis. MLT also has a diversified tenant base that offers it some resiliency against a recession. To see if my hypotheses are true, I tuned in to MLT’s 2020 virtual AGM to find out more. So here are six things I learned from MLT’s 2020 AGM: 1. MLT’s distribution per unit (DPU) increased by 2.5% y-o-y in FY19/20. The i

How to invest in Singapore REITs for passive income – a beginner’s guide
Retail investors are drawn to real estate investment trusts (also commonly known as REITs) because of the passive income they offer. Sinagpore REITs can fetch a decent yield, ranging between 5-8% per annum. While REITs are great vehicles to build a dividend portfolio, you will still need to pick the right ones at the right price in order to grow your portfolio and maximise your dividends. So what are REITs? REITs are investment trusts that pool investors’ money to buy and own income-producing real estate. These properties are leased out to tenants who, in turn, pay rental income to the REIT. Like all property investors, REITs can also acquire new properties, enhance and improve existing ones, or increase rental rates to grow their income. As an investor, you are entitled to

Case Studies for SREITs with Capital Distribution from Disposal
In previous post, I did calculations for DPU downfall for SREITs with more than 5% income support in their distribution. For this post, we will look at another aspect in which SREITs use its capital distribution to boost their DPU. I will only focus on SREITs with more than 5% capital distribution from disposal in their distribution.Before we start, we will need to set the definition right.
