It seems the only group of people who still care about the global economy and took decisive actions were the central banks. The US Federal Reserve and European Central Bank cut rates in the third quarter. Following the footsteps of Japan, bond yields in Europe have gone negative too. Slowing growth, stubbornly low inflation and lack of real wage growth in the developed nations. That's the state of the world right now. There is no alternative (TINA) but to hunt for higher yields in REITs and dividend stocks. Assets which are generating stable cashflow are in demand. There is no way the central banks can afford to hike rates and risk a global recession. Interest rates are never going back to the previous high of 5%, not in the near future anyway. Luckily, Singapore is a leading REITs hub in Asia. We should capitalise on this niche advantage.
