If i were to do a lump sump investment into REIT every half yearly (around $3000 worth) – can i ask how would you advise going into the different REITs to build my own REIT portfolio? In my mind, wouldn’t the fees be quite hefty?
e.g. $600 into MCT, $600 into Ascendas, $600 into MLT, $600 into Frasers, $600 into Netlink = $3000
The fees will be 0.12% at DBS Cash-upfront per counter at min $10, wouldn’t this transction be $50 in fees alone, per half yearly? Is there a better way to doing this?
Perhaps look into some investments that use the underlying REIT ETFs (eg robo advisor Kristal seems to offer a Real Estate option that hits most of the choices you listed).
Using that you get the wide exposure without the upfront cost of direct investing.
