Thanks for sharing Mr Wood.

I would like to share some thoughts.

Investors based in Singapore would be exposed to FX risk when they invest. The expected div yield after adjusting for withholding tax and FX may not beat investing into Singapore Reits. It does offer some diversification benefits one needs to be comfortable holding on to USD which tends to weaken agst the SGD as MAS typically maintains an appreciating stance.
30 % withholding tax !
very practical concerns.
withholding tax and fx risk.

but for US stocks, I can buy mainly like 10shares with low comms, so it makes some sense than the high comms with sg brokers. dis is my rational for diversify with smaller capital into US.
