4.) Challenges: The changing regulatory environment in Singapore like shorter industrial land tenure, revised and more stringent subletting policy is a challenge. Moreover, Rental reversionary outlook is likely to turn more muted given closing gap between market and passing rental levels.

8.) Recommendation: Buy. A good stock for investors seeking dividend stocks. General trend for DPU of this REIT is stable and if not increasing slightly. NAV is also on a constant increasing trend which signifies healthy growth, leading to increased profits for buyers.  The stability of A-REIT’s future performance is underpinned by the diversity and depth of its portfolio. However, a deterioration in the economic outlook could have a negative impact on industrial rents and occupancies as companies cut back production and require less space; industrial rents have a strong correlation with GDP growth.
