Pick-up expected in performance of office and hotel S-REITs despite rising interest rates

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.

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.
