You were right in terms of the addition of Keppel DC REIT.

I guess that Sembcorp Industries is still likely to be the next to go out when the next review happens.

hi Shrivathsa,

I was predicting that Keppel DC REIT would replace 1 of the SATS/Semb Ind/CDG, but it was added due to Capital land REITs merging instead, so I wasn't really "right" per say.

Now all these 3 companies seem to be recovered a bit - Semb Ind/CDG have announced some evolution plans and SATS has vaccination to thank for. But nonetheless, in current low interest rate environment and the quest for bigger AUM, those REITs in the reserve list will just continue to acquire new assets via rights/private placement/debt and be ever ready to replace those 3, if any of them stumble.

That said, unless SGX convinces Grab to do a secondary listing here, else STI ETF continues to be a banker + landlord.

Grab or Sea are both good candidates for SGX to attract, being headquartered in Singapore and having market capitalisation in the billions. The odds of that happening (i.e. secondary listing on SGX) is still extremely low.

Low but not impossible. There is a higher chance for Grab though..

Spore is a Bantamweight, and performing at Lightweight (2 classes above). It is trying to go the next class Welterweight - we should all be cheering for it, rather than bring it down by comparing with US/HK markets.

Grab mulls secondary listing in Singapore home market: sources

GRAB Holdings, South-east Asia's ride-hailing to delivery giant, is considering a secondary listing in its home market of Singapore after completing a Nasdaq listing via a US$40 billion SPAC merger, three sources familiar with the matter said.

Listing on Singapore Exchange (SGX) would enable Grab to have an investor base close to where its regional business is based, the sources said, potentially offering its customers, drivers and merchant partners easier access to trade its shares.
