How will S-REITs navigate the New Normal? This was the theme of the DBS-REITAS Forum held virtually last week.
Many of the changes that have been brought in by the pandemic will outlive the pandemic – the way we live, work, shop and travel as well as the significant digital transformation taking place which is bound to continue. To give some colour on how these trends are impacting REITs, we were privileged to hear from DBS’ Head of Property Research for Singapore, Derek Tan as well as the CEOs of Cromwell European REIT, Keppel DC REIT, EC World REIT, Frasers Centrepoint Trust, Suntec REIT and Lendlease Commercial REIT who shared their views in two stimulating panel discussions.
Thank you Joseph Poon, Derek Tan, Rachel Tan, Anthea Lee, Simon Garing, Goh Toh Sim, Richard Ng, Kee Hiong and Kelvin Chow for your perspectives!
