Welcome

Welcome to my investment blog where I share with you my analysis of REITs in Singapore.

I hope that my investment philosophy will bring me a steady stream of income apart from my job. I am aiming for at least $3,000 per month which can sustain the current expenses of myself and my family.

Do enjoy reading my blog and post any comments that you have. I welcome them because it is a time to learn from each other.

When I am looking at investing in REIT, here are some of the guidelines that I am looking at. Feel free to comment on it. I am willing to listen to ideas.

-> at least 8% yield.
-> Price that is lower than its NAV.
-> Low gearing (if possible)
-> High secured NAV.

Current Dividend income is $4,200/month.

This is something worth waiting for. Will look at the details once it is up. According to the article, there are two more coming up so might be a wise choice to park some funds to jump into these opportunities.

  1. Hi I am new to reits and am fascinated by your blog! If a reit is not in Singapore, eg this one to be, which has assets in China and Mapletree Logistics trust which has properties in Asia, will a strong Singapore Dollar be a disadvantage?

    1. Hi Reiko,

      Just managed to see your post today. Yes a strong dollar will be a disadvantage. Therefore, if we are to invest in foreign properties through listed REITs, we got to be mindful of currency risk unless they manage to hedge it.
