Scared of Inflation? Here’s Why You Should Buy Singapore REITs
April 14, 2022
As investors, we’re bombarded with the headlines every single day. “Inflation at Multi-Decade Highs”. “Energy Costs Surge on Back of Russia-Ukraine War”.
Inflation is here and it’s not going anywhere in the immediate future. So how should investors – based in Singapore – approach what they buy for their portfolios?
Obviously, we should always focus on the long term when we invest. However, there are also steps we can take to both diversify and protect our portfolios during periods of structural change.
In times like these (of high inflation), it might be surprising to hear me say that Singapore real estate investment trusts (REITs) are actually a great way to protect your portfolio from inflation. Here’s why.
