Abstract

Since the Property Market Consultative Committee, which was appointed by the Government, recommended the introduction of Equity Real Estate Investment Trust (EREIT) in February 1986, a few empirical studies have been done to assess the impact of REITs on the Singapore property market. Unfortunately REITs are yet to be introduced in Singapore. In view of the success of REITs and REIT-like instruments in the US, UK etc, this study sets out to investigate the potential for REITs in Singapore. It is found that in view of the disadvantages of direct property investment, investors in Singapore want access to larger properties, liquidity and reduced investment risk through unitised/securitised property vehicles such as REITs.
