About two decades after the Singapore REITs market started in 2002, there are today over 35 S-REITs and Trusts with a total market capitalisation of more than $100 billion.

Making up around 15% of the Singapore Exchange’s total market capitalisation, these instruments are no longer just an essential component of the Singapore stock market but also its bright spot, recording a total return of 53% over the past five years.
