SINGAPORE (Apr 12): Expect a pick-up in office and hotel S-REITs, while the retail and industrial logistics segments should see a slowdown, says UOB in its REITs' results preview.

With the Fed signalling two more rate hikes in 2018, S-REITs could face higher financing costs in the near term although UOB expects pickup in growth to offset the impact of higher financing cost.

In addition, REITs are also more insulated against rate hikes with a higher proportion of their financing in fixed-rate and longer-term maturity instruments.
