8 things I learned from the 2020 Frasers Property AGM
Frasers Property is a multinational real estate and property management company that owns, develops, and manages a property portfolio worth S$37.6 billion as at 30 September 2019. Its portfolio comprises commercial, hospitality, retail, residential, and industrial assets located in 25 countries including Singapore, China, UK, and Australia. Frasers Property is also the sponsor of four Singapore-listed REITs: Frasers Centrepoint Trust, Frasers Commercial Trust, Frasers Hospitality Trust, and Frasers Logistics & Industrial Trust. As REIT investors ourselves, I was interested to learn more about the parent company behind the Frasers family of REITs — a few of which are on our watchlist.

Key Takeaways from CapitaLand Commercial Trust & CapitaLand Mall Trust Merger
Two of the oldest REITs listed on SGX have announced a merger on 22 January 2020. CapitaLand Commercial Trust(SGX: C61U), or CCT, and CapitaLand Mall Trust (SGX: C38U), or CMT, announced that they would merge by way of a trust scheme arrangement. Both REITs are managed by real estate giant CapitaLand Limited (SGX: C31). This news is hardly surprising considering that it comes hot off the heels of another recently-announced REIT merger — that of Frasers Logistics & Industrial Trust (SGX: BUOU), or FLT, and Frasers Commercial Trust (SGX: ND8U), or FCOT. This December 2019 announcement continues the trend of REIT mergers within Singapore as the prevailing belief continues to be “bigger is better”.   Transaction Summary CMT will acquire all the issued and paid-up uni

CMT-CCT merger: Pros and cons for unitholders
On 22 January 2020, CapitaLand Mall Trust (CMT) and CapitaLand Commercial Trust (CCT) announced a proposed merger by way of a trust scheme arrangement. The news should not come as a big surprise to many as there had already been three REIT mergers in Singapore in 2019 alone, and CMT-CCT’s announced merger looks set to become the fourth. Both CMT and CCT can be considered behemoths in their own right. The former owns 15 quality shopping malls in Singapore located in strategic suburban and downtown areas, with a total property value of S$11.8 billion and a market capitalisation of S$9.55 billion. The latter is Singapore’s first listed commercial REIT with a total of 10 properties (eight in Singapore and two in Germany), with a total property value of S$11.1 billion and market

Assessing FLT and FCOT’s Merger
Frasers Logistics and Industrial Trust (FLT) announced that they will be merging with Frasers Commercial Trust (FCOT). The benefit of this deal looks rather straightforward to me, but I thought sometimes it is good to exercise some investing brain juice. If you failed to use it, you will lose it faster. This article will be rather short (hopefully). How the Acquisition Will be Done The merger will be done by FLT acquiring FCOT through a combination of issuing new FLT shares for FCOT and paying cash to FCOT shareholders. For each FCOT shares, FLT will swap 1.233 FLT shares at an issue price of S$1.24. FLT will also pay FCOT shareholders a sum of S$0.15 per share in cash. The entity will be managed by FLT’s management team. The joint entity will then a

Earlier this week on 28 November, both Frasers Logistics Trust and Frasers Commercial Trust requested for a trading halt. According to Bloomberg, Frasers Logistics & Industrial Trust and Frasers Commercial Trust are planning to merge. Should they become a combined company, they will manage close to 100 properties in Australia, Singapore and Europe. This 2019, Singapore has seen its fair share of REITs consolidation. Earlier this year, CapitaLand struck a $6 billion deal with Temasek Holdings for Ascendas and Singbridge. OUE Commercial REIT also agreed to buy OUE Hospitality Trust, and Ascott Residence Trust and Ascendas Hospitality Trust combined to create the largest hospitality trust in the Asia-Pacific region.

Assessing Opportunity Costs in Investing
Economists and investors usually do not see eye to eye on many things, and it’s generally because of the way each group has been educated to see things. Investors look typically to individual companies for investment ideas; economists, on the other hand, look more at the macro-economic environment in order to discern if the outlook is good or poor. However, there is one thing investors can learn from economists, and that is the concept of opportunity cost. Investopedia defines opportunity cost as “the benefits an investor or business misses out on when choosing one alternative over another.” Economists view this as an “unseen” cost that is easily overlooked by investors as people tend to focus more on decisions that were actually made instead of opportunities

The Week Ahead: US Fed, Bank of England and Bank of Japan
The whole world will find out next week whether The White House has got its way with the US Federal Reserve. The US central bank is widely expected to give in to the childish name-calling by cutting interest rates by a 0.25% to 2%. There are also interest rate decisions from the Bank of Japan, which doesn’t have much room to cut, and the Bank of England, which has been left high-and-dry by a directionless UK parliament. Meanwhile, Bank Indonesia could leave interest rates unchanged after it unexpectedly cut rates in August. China will release retail sales numbers for August. They are expected to show a pickup in growth from the previous month. In July, sales growth slowed for garments, cosmetics and home appliances. But there was growth in personal care and office supplies. Sin

3 Singapore REITs That Have the Firepower to Make Yield-Accretive Buys
The fastest way for real estate investment trusts (REITs) to reward unitholders with increasing distributions is through acquisitions. A prudent acquisition can help increase distribution per unit (DPU) much faster than organic growth in rents. With that in mind, I did a little digging to find REITs within Singapore that were best-positioned to make yield-accretive acquisitions in the future. In my research, I screened for REITs that had access to cheap debt (preferably below 3%) and had low gearing ratios (preferably below 33%). Here are three of the top REITs I found that fit that criteria. 1. Ascott Residence Trust (SGX: A68U) Sponsored by property giant, CapitaLand Limited (SGX: C31), Ascott Residence Trust is in a great position to continue making yield-accretive acquisitions. As of

The Differences between Singapore and United States Office Lease Agreements
The tenant leases for commercial properties in China, Hong Kong and Singapore are rather unique in that they are shorter. There are no rental escalation. Typically, the tenure is less than 5 years. In Singapore and Hong Kong, the commercial offices and shopping centers have 3 to 5 year leases. When real estate investment trusts (REITs) that owned foreign commercial properties came over to Singapore, their leases looked pretty unique to the Singapore investors. The investors welcome the longer leases, which also usually comes with annual rental escalations. If there were no annual rental escalations, there are typically mid term reviews. However, we might have missed some of the drawbacks with these different lease structure as well. The Differences between USA and Singapore
