REITs 17.6% total return YTD; better than rental yield: SGX

All 31 S-REITs have given investors an average total return of 17.6 per cent for the period spanning January to Aug 4 this year.

“If you were to compare REITs with the physical market for the average individual investors out there, your rental yield is probably in the range of about 3 per cent and on top of that you obviously have to pay tax, based on the personal income in bracket.

And in the case of the dividend yield from REITs, it’s about 6 to 7 per cent and from a tax standpoint, it’s very efficient because it’s tax exempt for both local and foreign individuals.”

— Mr Chan Kum Kong, SGX Head of research and products
