    And it does not take much cash to invest in London anyway if you buy low cost, high rental yield properties from what I read.

    10k in pounds and one can invest in notes which gives returns based on property there.

    I would not invest there now since even UOB has a neg view of it going forward.

    Investing in London is much much more sophiscated.
    If you can't afford Singapore properties, how are you going to buy London's?
    Prime Singapore condo is about S$1800 psf versus PCL GBP 2300 psf.

    Real estate funds(some are co-own funds) are just one approach for people with no sophisticated knowledge about London properties and not much money
    (whether making money or not is another matter)

    I think the market is not able to grasp the long term impacts of brexit. So there would be turbulence for quite a while. The fund investors are normally the easiest to quit the market and are in panic mode now apparently. Stopping redemption is quite a desperate move and a precaution to a collapsing market that could result.

    Yes, definitely we will be expecting some kind of uncertainty from the impacts of Brexit especially from the Europeans themselves. But then again this could be a window of opportunity. GBP has dropped to its lowest in 30 years at 1.7650, which make London Property more affordable especially to Asia and Middle East Investors.

    Either way, London Property are more for the upper-middle investors, I am more for low quantum investments that has higher capital appreciation potential :)

    To me, buying cheap is a perpetually good thing one could do when investing.

    "The Straits" project, launched in 2015 and expected VP in 2018. The building will be a hotel suite managed by Ramada, an international 4* chain. On the lease back scheme offered, they guarantee 7% for 1st 5 yrs follow by 6% for the next 5 years. What do you think?
