So far, the current valuation of Singapore’s market is also very reasonable with the STI hovering around 3200 region.

Where to go if you quit Singapore ?
One of the exercises in the recent workshop I ran was a simulation exercise to close off Day 1.Workshop participants are invited to form groups to imagine leaving Singapore for greener pastures. As part of the exercise, each group of students will elect a target country. Students will then try to dig out economic data on the target country, make broad estimates on how much it would cost to live in that country and estimate how large a Singapore portfolio should be to generate passive income required to retire there. They will subjectively assess which part of the market cycle the country is in and then they will do some research on what kind of instruments in SGX will allow some proxy bets on that economy. Finally, they will also have to defend an asset allocation in the target economy sho

5 Stocks To Rotate Into During This Risk-Off Environment

Investors Takeaway: 4 Overseas REITs That Investors Should Focus On CapitaLand Retail China Trust Following the divestment of CapitaMall Anzhen, CapitaLand Retail China Trust has replaced it with a much younger asset – Rock Square – in the first-tier city of Guangzhou.

2 REITs With Steady Returns That Are Trading Below Their Book Values
Benjamin Graham, author of the “The Intelligent Investor” and mentor to legendary investor Warren Buffett, was a keen believer of investing in securities with a low price-to-book ratio. The price-to-book ratio or PB ratio is a comparison between how much one is paying for the security and its net asset value. In theory, buying a stock that trade at a discount to its book value is like buying a $1 coin for less than a dollar. Investors would be able to reap a return when the market realises the discrepancy and raises the share price to its fair value. This method of valuation is especially useful for real estate investment trusts (REITs) or companies with largely tangible assets on its books. With that, here are two REITs with steady distributions that are trading below their book value

Governance of trusts: sunny, with a chance of isolated showers
First published in Business Times on 1 August, 2018 By Mak Yuen Teen and Chew Yi Hong Last year, we launched the Governance Index for Trusts (GIFT), the first-ever published governance index in Singapore that is specifically developed for listed real estate investment trusts (Reits) and business trusts (BTs) in Singapore. GIFT assesses both governance and business risk factors. We assessed 43 trusts. This year, we covered 44 trusts, comprising six that are constituted as stapled securities (SS), nine pure business trusts and 33 Reits. We excluded four newly-listed trusts that have not yet published an annual report at the cut-off date. Some changes were made to the index, including the addition of a small number of new demerit criteria, and replacing volatility of returns with a criterion

4 Reasons To Invest In S-REITs Now
REITs have traditionally been a mainstay in Singaporeans’ investment portfolio. However, with interest rates now rising, interest in REITs seem to have waned. However, DBS thinks that there are four good reasons why you should be investing in REITs at this point in time. S-REITs Aren’t Bonds, So Stop Pricing Them As One Investors and the market have been taking a cautious stance towards REITs due to rising interest rates and expensive valuations over the last five years. However, DBS opines that both investors and the market have been misreading drivers of REIT prices.
