TISCO Wealth and Forbes Thailand Hosted an Exclusive Forum “Offshore Property Markets”
 


TISCO Wealth, a comprehensive wealth management service offering global wealth advisory, joined Forbes Thailand magazine to host an exclusive seminar “An Alternative Investment Forum on Offshore Property Markets”. TISCO Wealth’s priority clients and honorable guests were invited to the forum to explore an alternative investment opportunity in offshore property markets on the 24th September 2015 at Anantara Siam Bangkok.

 


In this exclusive forum, the global property experts from Knight Frank, the world's leading property advisor, shared their first-hand knowledge and positive outlook on offshore property markets. Moreover, Khunying Sasima Srivikorn, a highly successful real estate businesswoman, was invited as the honored guest speaker to share the experience of investing in Reading Football club and property developments in Reading town in England. The exclusive night ended with the panel discussion “Maximizing Your Wealth in Property Investment” by investment gurus who provided in-depth views and advice on the alternative investment opportunity in global property markets to maximize returns.

 


Oranuch Apisaksirikul, TISCO Group CEO, said that in relation to Thailand's economic frailty, TISCO has advised a number of alternative investment opportunities aboard to clients to grow their wealth for better returns with comprehensive analysis by TISCO Economic Strategy Unit and development of financial products that suit the current situations and clients’ investment needs. Another alternative asset class with high potential for future growth is “offshore property”, especially those in developed countries which are showing signs of economic recovery.

 


Komsorn Prakobphol, Head of Strategy, TISCO Economic Strategy Unit (TISCO ESU) said that an alternative investment in property can be a long-term endeavor to maximize returns. In the past 15 years, global property provided an average annual return of 10.3%, higher than global equities which provided an average annual return of 7.4%. For that reason, TISCO ESU recommended allocating 7-10% of portfolio to alternative investments such as property or commodities.

TISCO ESU recommended European property and Japan property where the economy looks to be into a good recovery phase. With their low interest rates environment resulting from quantitative easing programs, investing in European and Japan property markets suggests further upside. Furthermore, European and Japan property are still cheaper and more affordable than other developed countries. As a result, they are the investment destinations for the next 3-5 years.

 


Supongvorn Mianpoka, Head of Global Investment, TISCO Asset Management, said that apart from direct property investment, there is also an alternative investment opportunity for those interested in offshore property. By investing in Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT), it allows investors the opportunity to gain exposure to the global real estate at lower cost compared to direct real estate investment. REITs are managed by dominant experts with long experiences and are efficient vehicles for return enhancement with diversified investment in global property portfolio.

One of the most recommended REITs is European REIT. Some examples are “Unibail-Rodamco Corporation”, the leading European commercial property who developed 54 large malls in Europe, and “Land Securities Group”, the largest commercial property in the UK who currently manages properties around the UK and is investing to build a pipeline of future opportunities in many cities in Europe such as Glasgow. European REIT valuations are at attractive levels, therefore it is recommended an “Overweight” in the portfolio. In addition to European REIT, other recommended regions are “Japan” REIT, where the government’s economic stimulus plans are still very much in progress and “US” REIT, which is showing potential for long-term prosperity despite its interest rate concerns.

 


One of the interesting alternative investments for those interested in offshore property investment is to invest through mutual funds. TISCO Asset Management provides mutual funds offering diversified exposure to the global real estate i.e. “TISCO Europe Property Fund” investing in European property, “TISCO Japan REIT Fund” investing in Japan property, and “TISCO US REIT Fund” investing in US property. The funds offer more liquidity than direct investment in property with less investment restrictions, and open for purchase or redemption every working day. Those interested may request the prospectus from all TISCO Asset Management or TISCO Bank branches. For further inquiries please call TISCO Contact Center 02-633-6000 press 4.

Warning
• Investor should understand the product characteristics, return conditions and risks before making investment decisions.
• Foreign fund does not have fully hedging policy against foreign exchange rate. Therefore, it may have gain or loss from foreign exchange or receive redemption proceeds less than their initial investment amount.
