  • Main Sector(s): Retail
  • Country(s) with Assets: Singapore & Malaysia
  • No. of Properties (exclude development/associate/fund): 10

Key Indicators

Performance Highlight

Gross revenue and NPI have declined YoY due to the divestment of Changi City Point and AEI of Tampines 1. Distribution from joint ventures has improved YoY due to the acquisition of an additional 10% stake in Waterway Point and the acquisition of a 25.5% interest in NEX. Nonetheless, distribution to unitholders and DPU remain similar despite the NPI decline due to higher management fees payable in units. 

Rental Reversion

Retail portfolio rental reversion is at 7.5%. For Central Plaza, the rental reversion is at 2.8%.

Shopper Traffic & Tenant Sales

Both shopper traffic and tenant sales have improved YoY. While shopper traffic is still below the pre-COVID level, tenant sales have continued to surpass the pre-COVID level.


FCT divested Changi City Point and shares in Hektar REIT in October and December 2023 respectively. In March 2024, FCT acquired another 24.5% interest in NEX.

Author's Opinion

Compared to the previous half-year, there has been a decline in gross revenue and NPI due to the divestment of Changi City Point and shares in Hektar REIT. However, DPU remains similar as the manager has further increased the fees payable in units. In terms of debt, no refinancing is required for FY24.
