SINGAPORE (Apr 28): Digital wealth management company Syfe and Singapore Exchange (SGX) has launched a first-of-its-kind portfolio that allows investors, and would-be investors to invest in and track the SGX’s iEdge S-REIT 20 index.

The index is one of the most popular indices in the Singapore stock market and it is made up of some of the largest S-REITs from across the retail, industrial, office, and logistics sectors.

The portfolio is now available to new and existing clients of Syfe REIT+, who can choose either a portfolio made up of REITs only, or a risk-managed portfolio that balances REITs with government bonds. The REIT allocation for both portfolios will replicate the iEdge S-REIT 20 index.

“For investors who want to take advantage of the recent dip in the REIT market and share our belief that real estate should be part of anyone’s portfolio, Syfe offers an easy-to-use platform to start investing in REITs at a low-cost and start earning dividend income,” says Dhruv Arora, Founder and CEO of Syfe.

"The iEdge thematic indices represent key segments of Singapore's securities market and the iEdge S-REIT 20 Index is one of the most widely referenced in our suite of indices,” says Simon Karaban, Head of Index Services at SGX.

“We are delighted that retail investors in Singapore now have the opportunity to gain greater exposure to the REIT offering in Singapore via Syfe's platform," he adds.

As at 3.50pm, SGX shares are trading flat at $9.77.
