SINGAPORE (Oct 8): The real estate investment trust sector in Singapore has been one of Singapore Exchange’s runaway success stories. The S-REIT sector is the sixth largest in terms of market cap globally and third largest in Asia, trailing behind Japan and Australia. Based on the latest available data, there are 11 ­S-REITs with all-overseas assets in their portfolios. They include Manulife US REIT and Keppel-KBS US REIT. Two more pure-play US REITs are likely to list in Singapore in the near future. Prime US REIT plans a listing before year-end, and an ­Ascendas-Singbridge-sponsored REIT with US assets could list early next year.
