Comprising 200 properties across Singapore, Australia, United Kingdom and the United States, Ascendas REIT has a net property value of $12.8 billion. These properties house business and science parks, suburban office spaces, logistics and distribution facilities and industrial buildings.

In FY2019, AREIT posted a DPU of 11.490 cents, some 3.3% lower than the 11.887 cents it logged in the corresponding nine month period a year ago.
