Abstract

Singapore Real Estate Investment Trusts (S-REITs) were first introduced to Singapore in 1998 as part of the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) efforts to develop the financial sector. There are currently twenty-five REITs listed on the Singapore Exchange (SGX). This makes Singapore home to the largest number of REITs in Asia (outside Japan). This chapter provides insights into the development of S-REITs, its risks and return performance, and growth potential. The authors postulate the development of residential REITs in the near-to-medium term after supply and demand and prices of residential properties stabilize in Singapore.
