Manulife US REIT explains disparity in yields between Singapore, US-listed REITs


Why are yields on Singapore-listed US focused REITs significantly higher than US-listed REITs that hold similar portfolios?

In this interview, Manulife US REIT sheds more light on a question that has perplexed several industry watchers since US-focused REITs begin listing in Singapore.

Manulife US REIT is one of two ‘pure play’ US-focused office REITs listed on the Singapore Exchange, with a portfolio of seven Grade A and Trophy Class office properties across the country.

The REIT has achieved yields upwards of 6.0% since listing in May 2016.

However, according to the US industry advocacy group NAREIT, the average dividend yield for the 21 US-listed office REITs in 2019 is just 3.45%.
