SINGAPORE (July 3): While real estate investment trusts have been able to raise equity to acquire properties, REIT Association of Singapore (REITAS) secretary Jerry Koh laments that market liquidity is sorely lacking.

“Structurally, our Singapore market lacks liquidity. This affects valuation and it’s a negative cycle. One of the suggestions I had was to encourage private funds or funds dedicated to investing in Singapore securities to provide liquidity for local stocks,” Koh says in a media briefing on July 2.

“We have lots of measures encouraging listings, education, etc. But the real problem is liquidity. We need investors to stay loyal to local stocks in the medium to long term,” adds Koh who is also deputy managing director of Allen and Gledhill.
