After a dismal 2012, the IPO market in Asia in general, Singapore in particular will get tested by the $1.3B launch of Mapletree - a REIT backed by state-owned fund Temasek. At the expected offering price, the yield could be as high as 6% vs. an average of around 5% for Singapore-traded REITs. EWS +1.5% YTD.
