Getting Started

Live REITs data above from Stocks.cafe

What are Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs)?

REIT stands for Real Estate Investment Trust.

"How do they earn money," you ask?

REITs pool money from investors to invest in a portfolio of income-generating real estate assets.

These assets can be:

  • hotels
  • industrial buildings
  • shopping malls
  • offices
  • or even data centres

In exchange for your investment in a REIT, you will receive distributions (read: money!) at regular intervals — usually on a quarterly basis.

But since REITs are professionally managed, the REIT managers will receive REIT management fees and property management fees. These will be paid out first before you, as an investor, receive your share of the cut.

How Do I Invest in REITs?

REITs trade like stocks on the stock market.

So all you need is an online brokerage in order to purchase the REIT you want.

The great thing about this is that this means REIT investors can gain exposure to the property market without the need for a huge capital outlay.

And unlike common stocks, REITs also enjoy unique tax transparency.

In order to qualify for this, Singapore REITs are required to pay out at least 90% of their taxable income to unitholders in the same year which the income comes in.

These regular and high payouts make Singapore REITs very attractive as an investment, particularly for investors who are looking for a regular source of passive income.
