Singapore is a unique country for Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) to thrive in. An excellent stepping stone to the REITs industry, this book is a must-have and once again, fundamentally altered the way I look at SG-listed REITs with the specific focus on the Singapore context.
Summary : A decade has passed since the launch of Singapore’s first REIT, Capita Mall trust in July 2002. Despite that, REITs are not as popular as they deserve to be and continue to be plagued with misperceptions. Singapore REITs are one of the few businesses that offer a direct play on the domestic economy and have proven their resilience through market cycles. This book takes a deep and fundamental look at this asset class and explains why every investor should take a serious look at REITs. Building Wealth Through REITs simplifies REIT investing without sacrificing depth of knowledge. It discusses common perceptions about REITs and why many of them don’t hold up to scrutiny. The book contains in-depth interviews with CEOs of major S-REITs that will stimulate your thinking and further your knowledge of various REITs. The book targeted at both novice and sophisticated investors will help you master the fundamentals of REITs and deepen your understanding of this asset class. It provides practical guidance on building a strong and high performing REIT portfolio, one that can set you on the path to financial freedom much earlier than you thought possible.
