REITs Symposium 2019
Shareinvestor, now a private entity and away from SPH, organized this event with REITAS almost every year.
- When: 18th May 2019, Saturday
- Where: Sands Expo and Convention Centre
Marina Bay Sands, Level 4
Roselle Simpor Ballroom
REITs Symposium is always a paid event and 2 years ago, when I went I paid for it.
They asked me to market for this. So that I can earn from this.
I am really struggling for time writing so I did not take them up for it.
But I think as my readers you should know about this.
This time round it seems bigger.
One of the main benefits for the investor is for you to have a session to speak with the people behind the REITs. As a more seasoned guy I think this is the benefit.
Even if you do not have questions, just by standing around, you can take in what the other investors asked. It may let you know how much sophistication that can go into investing in REITs.
During the REITs Symposium, there will be talks given by the REIT managers and experts.
This time round the session is broken up to 2 groups:
- A High Quality Portfolio Focused on Major Developed Logistics Markets by FLT
- Trusted Investment Partner, Delivering Sustainable Returns by Keppel Capital
- Managing your personal REIT portfolio by Phillip Capital
- A Well Diversified Hospitality Trust by Ascendas Hospitality Trust
- UOB Presentation
- Ascott Residence Trust Presentation
- Panel Discussion #1 – REITs: Still a Viable Investment?
- Asia ex Japan REITs: Why Should You Own a Piece of It by Nikko Asset Management
- Riding the wings of E-Commerce Logistics by EC World REIT
- REITs Investing via Margin Financing by Maybank Kim Eng
- Panel Discussion #2 – Insights to Best Performing Singapore REITs
The second group is to cater for investors who are new and learning about things:
- REITs vs Physical Properties
- Metrics to Evaluate a REIT Part 1 – Yield
- Metrics to Evaluate a REIT Part 2 – Price/NAV
- Metrics to Evaluate a REIT Part 3 – Gearing Ratio
- Building a Diversified REIT Portfolio
There are enough people that tells me my content can be rather deficient in certain areas, and you might find the interactive sessions an easy way to learn.

Not sure if you have read my previous comment. Can you add Sasseur REIT to your stock tracker? Would be much appreciated

Hi, my thoughts
1. Sg is lacking a S-Reits ETF which is - market cap weighted - TER of 0.50% or lower - distributes quarterly
2. Moneyowl fees need to be same or better than Autowealth (0.50% + US$10) to be attractive.
