InvestingNote Interview Series

We’re having our first-ever Interview Series where we will be interviewing some very important people and asking them questions that you, as a retail investor, want answered. The aim of this series is not only to give retail investors a voice and help you become better at investing, but also to bridge the knowledge gaps between financial institutions.

How does it work:

The theme for this interview will be Property Stocks & REITs.

The interviewee will be Tan Dehong, analyst from PhillipCapital. @PhillipCapital

Here is a sample list of questions that you will be selecting for the analyst to answer. The top 8 questions will be selected by a poll and we will conduct the interview with the analyst. Thereafter, Dehong will answer your questions and the transcript of the interview will be posted here.

Sample Questions you can ask:
Should you still stay vested or invest in a REIT when DPU falls or stays the same?
What is the prospect of the property market within the next 6 months?
What’s 3 key things to look out for when buying a REIT or property counter?
Is gearing ratio a deal-breaker for you when it comes to REITs and property counters?

How to participate:
Simply comment below only one question you have regarding any REIT or property counters.

Rules of the poll:

Only the top 8 questions with the highest number of likes will be selected and asked during the interview with the analyst.

The selection process will also involve moderation to pick out the most appropriate and popular questions. This process precedes the number of likes/comments and it will be at the our discretion. Only questions regarding the theme will be eligible to be selected.

In the case of questions with the same number of likes, selection will be based on chronological order. Please only post the questions in the comments, and not in the replies to other comments.

Reply to @InvestingNote : Not many questions from us so we hope he can provide his insight for each question as detailed as he can. Thanks!


what happens if a REIT goes bust? Who do the properties go to and what happens to them? What happens to the sponsor or major shareholders?


for REIT to go expansion and buys properties (DPU accretive), what is the best ways to raise funding? issue Rights, Private placement, Bond?


If interest rate is to raise by another 1% by the end of this year, how many % need the REITs drop in correspondence to the rate hike, in a general terms.


When REITs acquire properties with income support, I understand that there are 2 kinds of income support; 1. to help support the NPI for new properties, or 2. to make it seem like the properties are cash flowing well for matured properties. A very recent example of a REITs potentially acquiring properties with income support for the 2nd reason is Sabana Industrial REITs. While the regulations were tightened in 2014 by MAS which require disclosures in annual reports for income support arrangements, do you think there should be more regulations in place to further protect the average investor's interest from such arrangements?


with singapore's stance on attractive tax incentives for Reits, why aren't more reits listing here? are there other countries with even more attractive incentives for reits to list there?
why is there also a lack of residential reits in singapore (after saizen reit bowed out) ?


If the dpu of any reits fall by 10%, how many percent of the price should fall for the reit?


If you were to ALL IN one reit counter and hold forever, which one will you choose and why?
