Besides playing an integral part in growing Singapore to become the successful city-state that it is today, these companies have also generated good returns for its owners and investors over the past years.

Best World unleashed terror with stunning revelation
What a revelation! On 13 May 2019, after a probe by SGX RegCo, Best World finally revealed that Koh Kim Chuan, the legal representative and shareholder of Changsha Best, is the brother-in-law of the Group’s CEO and Managing Director.  Currently, Best World shares are suspended from trading and hapless investors are once again left high and dry. In recent years, corporate governance issues had dogged numerous SGX-listed companies like Yuzoo, Noble Group, Midas and the likes. Even blue chips like Keppel Corporation are also not spared (Keppel was fined a whopping $560 million by US authorities in 2018 over corruption scandal). Against this backdrop, I am not surprised if Best World turns out to be yet another falling knife. It seems to be disaster after disaster for SGX-listed companies,

These 2 International S-REITs Delivered 20%+ Returns to Investors in 2019
There are 34 Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs), five stapled trusts and three property trusts listed on the Singapore Exchange Limited (SGX: S68). The sector has a combined market capitalisation of nearly S$100 billion, with Retail, Industrial and Office REITs making up the largest segments. In general, REITs are one of Singapore investors’ favourite investment vehicles, mainly due to the predictability of REITs’ earnings over the long term. Moreover, not only can Singapore investors buy REITs with exposure to Singapore properties but there are also plenty of REITs with international exposure. In this article, I’ll take a look at two of the best-performing international REITs year-to-date. REIT 1 The first REIT on our list is Keppel-KBS US REIT (SGX: CMOU). As a quick in

Real Estate Investment Trust vs Physical Properties, Which Suits You?
Thinking about investing in real estate? Buying physical properties isn’t the only way to go about it these days. In recent years, real estate investment trusts (REITs) have emerged as a popular way to dip into the real estate market without directly buying a property. If you’ve been considering investing in REITs, here’s what you need to know about them, and how they’re different from investing in physical properties. What is a REIT? A REIT is like a unit trust fund, in that it pools many people’s money to hold a group of investments. However, instead of investing in stocks and bonds like unit trust funds do, REITs invest in property. You can buy and sell REITs on the Singapore Exchange (SGX), just like stocks. REITs are therefore a way to invest in real estate without having

3 Companies That Pay You Dividends Every 3 Months
Some investors rely on dividends to fund their lifestyle. As such, those investors may want to invest in companies that dish out a dividend every quarter for a regular income stream. With that, here’s a deeper look at three solid Singapore businesses paying quarterly dividends that might entice dividend investors. Banking on dividends The first company on the list is Singapore’s largest bank, DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05). DBS has increased its dividend from S$0.58 per share in 2014 to S$1.20 per share in 2018. In its 2019 first-quarter earnings report, DBS said that it would start paying dividends every quarter to provide “shareholders with more regular income streams”, instead of biannually previously. The S$1.20 per share dividend will now be broken up into four equal parts

4 Stocks This Week (US-Play S-REITs) 10 May 2019 – Kep-KBS REIT; Manulife REIT; ARA HTrust; Ascott REIT
We look at specific themes and/or groups of companies on the Singapore Exchange (SGX) in our 4 Stocks This Week every week. This week, we look at how investors in Singapore can get US REIT exposure with four REITs and business trusts that are listed here. Since Manulife US REIT listed in Singapore in May 2016, offering the first pure-play US REIT exposure for investors here, there have been two other such listings – Keppel-KBS US REIT in November 2017 and, more recently, ARA US Hospitality REIT, in May 2019. These REIT and business trust listings coincide with the positive economic growth and outlook in the US in the past few years.

3 Best-Performing Singapore REITs in the Last Three Years
There are 34 Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs), five stapled trusts and three property trusts listed on Singapore’s stock exchange. The sector has a combined market capitalisation of nearly S$100 billion, with Retail, Industrial and Office REITs making up the largest segments. In general, the REIT structure is one of Singapore investors’ favourite investment vehicles, mainly due to the predictability of their earnings over the long term. Yet, not all REITs are created equally, and some perform stronger than the rest over the longer term. In this article, I’ll look at three best-performing Singapore REITs in the last three years (data as of 26 April 2019). REIT 1 The first REIT on our list is Mapletree Logistics Trust (SGX: M44U).

3 Companies You Should Buy-to-Hold in Your CPF Investment Account
Singaporeans should be very familiar with the central goal of the Central Provident Fund (CPF), which is to help you retire comfortably. However, not many may be as familiar with the CPF Investment Scheme (CPFIS) that is tagged on to your CPF Ordinary Account (OA). Through this scheme, you can invest to earn better returns using your CPF Investment Account (CPFIA). The CPFIS allows you to purchase investments using your OA account but this is restricted to 35% of the “investible savings” for equities (i.e. shares and unit trusts) and another 10% for gold. The interest rate on the CPF Ordinary Account (OA) stands at 3.5% for the first S$20,000 and 2.5% thereafter. Therefore, the intention is for us to be able to at least beat the 3.5% “risk-free” rate which is being

Upcoming Personal Finance Events In Singapore You Should Attend In 2019
Increasingly, we are able to learn important and useful personal finance information by just spending time online – either reading personal finance websites, such as the one you’re currently on, watching explainer videos, attending webinars, downloading e-books and many other ways. This doesn’t mean there is no value to attending physical events, where you get to listen to the speaker explain his thought process, engage in Q&A sessions the specialist and interact with other like-minded participants.
