On 15 April 2017, I attended a full-day REITs Analysis Workshop, part of the Bursa Investor Education Workshop Series where they talk about different investment vehicles and investment strategies. REITs stands for Real Estate Investment Trust. For other Bursa Malaysia-organised events, see here.

It was presented by speaker Chua I-Min from ShareInvestCoach.com, a Singaporean financial planner specialising in fundamental analysis (I’ll explain this term too). I think the speaker did a great job in breaking down all the jargon into digestible information.

All-in-all, I learned loads. Here are 5 things I learned about REITs in Malaysia, because sharing is caring.

Bistari Condominium. It’s a really nice place. I can truthfully say that I can’t afford to buy this place and I feel that I’m living above my means. It’s absolutely prime location: next to LRT station, walking distance to monorail and KTM. Walking distance to PWTC, Sunway Putra Mall and medical centres. Condominium facilities includes: Swimming Pool, Sauna, Foot Reflexology, Tennis Court, Mini Gym, 24-hour Security, and tennis court. House facilities includes: fully furnished with dining table, sofa etc, full kitchen, washing machine, and AC.

How did I do it?
