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
As the earnings visibility for FY19 fades, CIMB thinks that investors should temper expectations. One recommended strategy is to load up some stocks with earnings certainty or which trade at deep discounts. In addition to a risk-off environment given the volatile macro outlook amid US-China trade tensions, CIMB thinks investors should also start preparing by tactically rotating into these yield stocks. Investors Takeaway: 5 Stocks To Rotate Into In This Risk-Off Environment Ascendas REIT With positive rental reversions of 10.5 percent in 1Q19 and contributions from new acquisitions and redevelopment activities, Ascendas REIT’s (AREIT) operating metrics have been improving.

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
