Margin on REITs – Higher Returns, Higher Risks!
Course Date: 20 & 21 February 2019 (Wednesday & Thursday night)
Course Fee: $488
A Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) is a dividend play instrument whereby most investors buy and hold for the long term to collect a steady stream of dividends. It is now possible to increase the dividend yield significantly with margin.
Of course, margin brings along additional risk, so the question is, “Can we enjoy the higher dividend returns with the risks mitigated?”
Program Objectives & Benefits
This is an intermediate level course whereby participants are expected to bring their own laptop with EXCEL to perform certain calculations. Please also note that investment with margin is considered high risk and not suitable for beginners. In this course, you will get insights and hands-on exercises on the following topics:
