3 Things You Need To Know About Singapore’s Property Shares This Week

Welcome to Sunday afternoon! Here are three things about Singapore’s property market and investing in general that you might want to look at today and over the rest of the week.

1. CapitaLand Limited (SGX: C31) is not just one of the largest property developers in the region, it is also one of the largest owners of real estate through its stakes in and management of real estate investment trusts.

One such REIT is the Malaysia-listed CapitaMalls Malaysia Trust. This week, the REIT announced that it will be acquiring a new retail and commercial property in Selangor, Malaysia. The RM540.0 million acquisition would be the second major acquisition made by the REIT after it got listed back in 2010. Is the deal a smart move for CapitaLand Limited?

2. CapitaLand Commercial Trust (SGX: C61U) is another REIT which is sponsored by CapitaLand Limited. Is the REIT a good investing opportunity now? My colleague David Kuo had tried to dig further into the business fundamentals of the REIT recently, so check out here for his thoughts.

3. SingHaiyi Group Ltd (SGX: 5H0), a real estate firm that got itself listed only a couple of years back through a reverse takeover, had recently announced that it will be partnering with property asset management firm ARA Asset Management Limited  (SGX: D1R) in a new private real estate fund that currently has a focus on commercial real estate in Malaysia.
