Investing in London is much much more sophiscated.
If you can't afford Singapore properties, how are you going to buy London's?
Prime Singapore condo is about S$1800 psf versus PCL GBP 2300 psf.

Real estate funds(some are co-own funds) are just one approach for people with no sophisticated knowledge about London properties and not much money
(whether making money or not is another matter)

Yes, definitely we will be expecting some kind of uncertainty from the impacts of Brexit especially from the Europeans themselves. But then again this could be a window of opportunity. GBP has dropped to its lowest in 30 years at 1.7650, which make London Property more affordable especially to Asia and Middle East Investors.

Either way, London Property are more for the upper-middle investors, I am more for low quantum investments that has higher capital appreciation potential :smile:

To me, buying cheap is a perpetually good thing one could do when investing.

"The Straits" project, launched in 2015 and expected VP in 2018. The building will be a hotel suite managed by Ramada, an international 4* chain. On the lease back scheme offered, they guarantee 7% for 1st 5 yrs follow by 6% for the next 5 years. What do you think?

very interesting article to share. It is saying if you are borned in the 70s, and expect to retire at 65, your savings need to stretch to 90-95 years old. It's almost impossible, and the article recommends to 'work until die'.

Investors in this forum will likely disagree.

Under the minimum sum CPF will pay out from 65 to 85, a period of 20 years. One gotta use only 66% of the payout so that the 34% balance can last another 10 years to 95.
Or better still, use only 50% and the balance until 105.
