Benefits of the REIT ETF
1) Low management fees of 0.05%
2) Exposure to Asia Pacific REITs, not just Singapore listed REITs
3) Diversification to 30 REITs instead of just a few REITs

1) How to position my portfolio for 2017?
2) Should I invest in the new REIT ETF?
3) What to invest in Singapore for the year 2017?
