S-REIT sector performance as a whole

Most investors I know of view S-REITs favourably, given the perceived features of high tax-efficiency, defensiveness and a relatively steady dividend stream.

In the past decade, the S-REIT sector as a whole has performed strongly with an annualized return of 8.7% from 2011 to 2021 YTD (see chart below), benefitting from relatively low interest rates via 3 ways:

  1. REIT borrowing expense are kept low, resulting in higher profits and higher distributable income.
  2. The appraised values of the REIT’s investment properties are more likely to see upward revisions, supporting the REIT’s share price.
