Webinar focusses on real estate investment trusts

Baiduri Capital organised a webinar titled ‘Three investment strategies by choosing the best Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs)’ yesterday, to educate investors on the global financial market.

REITs are a popular investment favoured by Bruneian investors for passive income.

The webinar was conducted by Chief Editor of the HQ Education Series at Phillip Securities Mike Ong Yao Heng.

Among the topics discussed were the fundamentals of REITs, factors to consider before investing in REITs and how best to decide what to invest in.

The webinar also provided an in-depth case study analysis on Frasers Centrepoint Trust, a leading developer-sponsored REIT listed on the SGX.

According to General Manager of Baiduri Capital Peng Eng Soon, “This is our second webinar this month with Phillip Securities. Given the current economic environment, it is even more imperative that we continue to educate our clients with the most current information.

“REITs are a very commonly discussed investment topic among our investors. This seminar aims to provide our investors with an overview of the fundamentals of REITs as well as three key investment strategies to invest in REITs.”
