Editor’s note: Changes have been made to the number of properties managed by Frasers Logistics & Industrial Trust. We apologize for the error.

Investment trusts, one the most popular being the real estate investment trust (REIT), can be a useful proxy for investors who want exposure to real estate, yet do not want the hassle of managing their own properties or do not have the means to own a whole property.

There are many benefits of investing in these types of trusts, such as regular income and relatively stable demand of services.

In this article, we will look at four different trusts listed on Singapore Exchange and their similarities.

Frasers Hospitality Trust (SGX: ACV) – A global hotel and serviced residence trust with 3,534 rooms across the various properties that it manages in eight different cities around the world, including UK, Singapore, Australia, Malaysia, and Japan.
