1. Passive income (every 3-6 months once)
2. Sustainable long-term capital appreciation.
3. Both in SGDs.

Are the above possible?

The answer is yes. One of the vehicles chosen is Singapore REITs (S-REITs). Many investors had built portfolios which consist of fundamentally solid S-REITs and thus, now enjoying recurring passive income as frequent as 3 months once, regardless of the economy or the stock market.

Some of those Malaysians are Ian Tai and subscribers of DividendVault.com.

Hence, I had brought in Ian Tai, my partner and Ming Han, Assistant Manager at POEMS to share about the following:

  • Why Consider S-REITs?
  • How to Identify Good S-REITs for Long-Term Investments?
  • How to Calculate the Final Cost for Your S-REIT Investment?
  • How to Calculate Your Net Distribution Yield for a S-REIT?
  • How to Open a POEMS account and make a Stock Transaction?

      For the exchange rate, I did both transfer from Maybank to POEM account and use wise transfer to my Singapore bank account and then transfer to POEM account. The wise transfer saved me around RM100+ per 1000SGD transfer. Not sure now still wise is the cheapest to do the transfer.

        Thanks for doing the test.
        That means Wise exchange rate has a thinner spread compared to exchanging RM to USD on POEMS.
        How far apart when you exchange? I understand that it wouldn’t be at the same time.
