Investing in a REIT is similar to investing in a publicly listed company where you become a part-owner of the asset. Instead of owning a part of a company, you become owner of properties that the REIT manages. Share price of REITs can fluctuate based on supply and demand, similar to regular stocks. Since REITs are publicly traded on the stock exchange, investment in REITs are much more liquid than direct property investments.
REIT are generally classified by the type of properties they own, which ranges from commercial, industrial, to retail and hospitality REIT. You can trade all SGX-listed REIT through DBS Vickers.
