Reits and property trusts on SGX: Varied choice, with diverse sectors and overseas exposure

1 week ago 48

Amid rising inflation and supply chain worries, Reits in Singapore have remained fairly resilient. And as retail and hospitality sectors revive, here's why these real estate investment trusts deserve a look.

There are 44 real estate investment trusts (Reits) and property trusts on the Singapore Exchange (SGX) with a market capitalisation of around $116 billion - or 13 per cent of the total value of the local market, based on data as at March 31.

These operate in many sectors. Industrial Reits include Ascendas Reit, which owns industrial buildings that cater to a wide range of businesses, from clean and light industries to general and specialised industries.
