Cryptocurrency has come a long way since the first-ever decentralized token, the Bitcoin, was created shortly over a decade ago. In December 2017, Bitcoin experienced a shocking rise in price, and that gave birth to the rise of many other utility tokens today. Using cryptographic techniques, these digital entities are mined and distributed electronically to their holders.
Many would wonder why such a medium of exchange is thriving despite the fiat currencies we have. The answer is simple, the network upon which transactions amongst currencies are recorded, the Blockchain Network, affords a lot of benefits which the traditional systems don’t. Some of these are the fact that the network is very secure, it is transparent so all global transactions can be tracked and most importantly, it is immutable so the records cannot be altered.

The COVID-19 crisis has brought about an unprecedented economic shock to many sectors, and yet it has also generated opportunities in others.
The tech sector has been a major beneficiary and along with that, S-REITs exposed to the Data Centre sector such as Keppel DC REIT and Mapletree Industrial Trust gained phenomenally.
But are the investment opportunities in REITs now gone? Personally, we do not think so. There are still many REITs below their pre-COVID-19 levels poise to recover strongly in the coming quarters – and now it is the best time to prepare to capture the post-COVID recovery.
Join us as we discuss the opportunities and risk in the S-REIT space sector-by-sector as we try to uncover recovery opportunities for FY2021 and beyond. Real estate sectors that we will be covering include the Retail, Hospitality, Offices, Healthcare, Industrial and Data Centres.
