Singapore exports tumble

Singapore’s exports dropped much more than expected in June, with data on Wednesday showing non-oil domestic exports in June plunging 17.3% year-on-year, widely missing the expected 9.9% contraction by economists in a Reuters poll. It was also the largest decline since February 2013, when exports dropped 33.2% as compared to the year before, according to Refinitiv Eikon data. The Straits Times index was flat in afternoon trade, while the Singapore dollar weakened 0.21% against the greenback to 1.3610, following levels below 1.356 seen yesterday. That comes on the back of a decline in Singapore’s gross domestic product for the second quarter, which was also well below forecasts. Economists now widely expect Singapore’s central bank to ease monetary policy, as its export-reliant economy slows amid the U.S.-China trade war. Economists at ING wrote in a note that the latest data could result in an “imminent” easing of monetary policy by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) in adjusting its exchange rate between the Singapore dollar and a basket of currencies of the country’s major trading partners.

US-China trade jitters

U.S. President Donald Trump said Tuesday that Washington and Beijing have a long way to go on trade, adding that America could place tariffs on an additional $325 billion worth of Chinese goods “if we want.” Trump’s comments come after China and the U.S. agreed not to ratchet up trade tensions in an effort to restart negotiations, with the two countries already having slapped billions of dollars worth of tariffs on each other’s goods. The protracted trade fight between the two economic powerhouses has raised concerns over its potential impact on economic growth as well as business confidence. Overnight stateside, the Dow Jones Industrial Average ended its four-day winning streak as it slipped 23.53 points to 27,335.63. The S&P 500 closed 0.3% lower at 3,004.04 and snapped a five-day winning streak, while the Nasdaq Composite shed 0.4% to finish its trading day at 8,222.80. Meanwhile, U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell on Tuesday reiterated his pledge to “act as appropriate” to keep the economic expansion going. His comments come amid expectations that the central bank could cut interest rates at its monetary policy meeting later in July. However, data on Tuesday showed U.S. retail sales increased more than expected in June, pointing to strong consumer spending, which could help to blunt some of the hit on the economy from weak business investment. Retail sales advanced 0.4% last month, higher than expectations of a 0.1% increase in June by economists in a Reuters poll.

Investors searching for yield should buy this sector in Singapore, strategists say

Singapore-listed real estate investment trusts may not appreciate much more in price given their roughly 20% rise this year — but strategists said they’re still a buy as interest rates will likely stay low.

Real estate investment trusts, or REITs, are companies that manage a portfolio of properties such as shopping malls, hotels and offices. Income generated from those real estate assets, after accounting for operating fees, is distributed as dividends to shareholders.

Investors generally find REITs attractive for their dividend payout and the potential for capital appreciation, and as a diversification in a portfolio of stocks, bonds and cash.

REITs listed on the Singapore Exchange — commonly known as S-REITs — have been a favorite among institutional investors. In the first six months of 2019, S-REITs attracted a net inflow of 396.3 million Singapore dollars ($291.85 million) from institutional investors, the exchange said in a report.

The Business Times did not specify its sources, but local newspaper The Straits Times said it had reviewed documents revealing the purchase.

Official title records seen by Reuters show billionaire Dyson and his wife became tenants of the 99-year leasehold property on June 20. The records did not state the price paid, the wire said.

Multibillion-dollar Singapore investing giant Temasek says its returns have taken a hit

In its latest annual report, Temasek — a closely followed investor globally — said its one-year shareholder return was 1.49% for the financial year to March 31. Over a longer term horizon, the company’s shareholder returns were 9% for a 10-year period and 7% for a 20-year timeline — compared to 5% and 7%, respectively, a year ago. “These issues have key repercussions on global sentiments and sustainable growth for the longer term,” he added.

Multibillion-dollar Singapore investing giant Temasek says its returns have taken a hit

Singaporean state investment firm Temasek Holdings on Tuesday reported a plunge in its returns over a one-year period amid a challenging economic environment compounded by trade tensions between the U.S. and China.

In its latest annual report, Temasek — a closely followed investor globally — said its one-year shareholder return was 1.49% for the financial year to March 31. That’s a major decline from 12% in the prior 12 months.

Over a longer term horizon, the company’s shareholder returns were 9% for a 10-year period and 7% for a 20-year timeline — compared to 5% and 7%, respectively, a year ago.

“We remain watchful around the risks of a late cycle recession in the US. Brexit and political fragmentation continue to weigh on Europe, while China has yet to move fully to restructure its economy for longer term sustainability,” Lim Boon Heng, Temasek’s chairman, said in the annual report.

“These issues have key repercussions on global sentiments and sustainable growth for the longer term,” he added.

Facing greater macroeconomic headwinds, the company made more divestments than investments in the last financial year: Temasek let go of 28 billion Singapore dollars’ worth of assets, while adding 24 billion Singapore dollars.

Temasek — which focuses on equity investments — said it divested from Gilead Sciences, Cargill Tropical Palm and Klabin.

Overall, the value of Temasek’s portfolio was 313 billion Singapore dollars (about $230 billion) as of March 31 — growing from 308 billion Singapore dollars in the previous year.

Dilhan Pillay Sandrasegara, chief executive of Temasek International, described the past year as “complicated and difficult.”

He told CNBC’s Tanvir Gill that factors such as the U.S.-China trade war affected the performance of Asian markets — where Temasek is heavily invested in.

Temasek International is the investment arm of Temasek Holdings.

This small European country has been ranked the world's best place to live and work

Switzerland has been ranked the best place in the world to live and work, stealing the crown from Singapore which was at the top for five consecutive years. High living standards and competitive salaries have seen the Swiss nation become a regular fixture among the world’s most livable cities. But at a time of growing global uncertainty, Switzerland’s famed political and economic stability helped it climb the ranks of HSBC Expat’s annual survey to score the top spot for the first time. Switzerland jumped up the rankings from 8th place last year after the vast majority of people who had relocated there from overseas said they were happy with its economic (80%) and political (86%) climate. About 82% of people who moved to Switzerland for work also said they enjoyed an improved standard of living compared to their home country.

Seven in 10 (71%) of those who have moved to Switzerland now enjoy higher levels of disposable income with their average salary being $111,587 — well above the global mean of $75,966. Meanwhile, 70% said their surroundings were cleaner and 42% felt physically healthier. This year’s report, which is based on responses from more than 18,000 expats across 163 markets, marks the first time in five years that Singapore was not ranked in first place. The Southeast Asian city-state shifted down one position to take second place. The top ten of HSBC’s “Best places to live and work” was rounded out in order by Canada, Spain, New Zealand, Australia, Turkey, Germany, United Arab Emirates and Vietnam.

Though Singapore failed to make it to the top of HSBC’s ranking for the sixth consecutive year, it remained a strong performer, especially for those moving abroad with children. Some 62% of respondents said the schooling system in Singapore is better than in their home country, while 69% rated the opportunity it afforded their kids to learn new languages.

Canada

Welcoming to foreigners

A consistently high performer, Canada’s reputation for welcoming foreign visitors saw it take third place this year. The vast majority (80%) of respondents also said they enjoyed a better quality of life in their new home, compared to the global average of 65%.

Spain

High quality of living

While few respondents said they relocated to Spain for their careers, more than two-thirds (67%) said they’d seen an improvement in their work-life balance as a result of the move. That, coupled with the country’s top ranking for mental well-being, saw Spain jump up 10 spots this year.

New Zealand

A long-term destination

Renowned for its stunning scenery and laid back way of life, more than half (57%) of people who moved to New Zealand said they did so to improve their quality of life. And it appears to pay off: 60% of those who moved stayed longer than expected. In fact, those who move to New Zealand are the most likely to stay in their new country for over 20 years.

Virtual banks could be bad news for small lenders in Singapore, Moody's says

Pedestrians walk past automated teller machines (ATM) at a United Overseas Bank Ltd. (UOB) branch in the central business district (CBD) of Singapore.

Singapore’s decision to issue new digital bank licenses to non-banking companies will adversely affect smaller banks in the sector, said ratings agency Moody’s.

Last week, the Monetary Authority of Singapore, said it will issue up to five new digital bank licenses to non-banks.

The central bank and regulator said it will distribute up to two digital full bank licenses, allowing non-banking firms to take deposits from retail customers. It will also issue up to three digital wholesale bank licenses for companies to serve small and medium-sized enterprises and other non-retail segments.

“The announcement by the MAS that it will issue up to five new digital bank licences is credit negative for small foreign-owned incumbent banks in Singapore,” Simon Chen, vice president for financial institutions group at Moody’s Investors Service, said in a note on Tuesday, indicating that their credit ratings may suffer as a result.

“Their modest domestic franchises will face the greatest disruption risk from digital bank entrants,” he added in a statement.

Singapore announces nearly $30 million for 5G research and innovation

Singapore plans to become an innovation hub for the next generation of high-speed mobile internet known as 5G. On Thursday, the country’s minister for communications and information, S Iswaran, said the city-state has set aside 40 million Singapore dollars (more than $29.5 million) to support 5G research and innovation. “Our aim is to facilitate the deployment of standalone 5G networks to tap into the potential of the technology,” Iswaran said at the Innovfest Unbound conference.

Singapore announces nearly $30 million for 5G research and innovation

Employees wait for a shuttle bus at a 5G testing park at Huawei’s headquarters in Shenzhen, Guangdong province, China May 29, 2019.

Singapore plans to become an innovation hub for the next generation of high-speed mobile internet known as 5G.

On Thursday, the country’s minister for communications and information, S Iswaran, said the city-state has set aside 40 million Singapore dollars (more than $29.5 million) to support 5G research and innovation.

“Our aim is to facilitate the deployment of standalone 5G networks to tap into the potential of the technology,” Iswaran said at the Innovfest Unbound conference.

A standalone network refers to new infrastructure designed using 5G-specific technologies. It is said to be relatively cheaper and more efficient compared to many of the initial wave of 5G networks that are being rolled out using existing infrastructure — known as non-standalone 5G.

The technology is “the backbone” of Singapore’s digital economy, Iswaran later told CNBC’s Matt Taylor in an interview. “Its resilience and security are key,” he said.

The new investment is part of an initiative announced at the conference in Singapore to begin early adoption trials for 5G technology. It is set to be in areas such as maritime operations, urban mobility, and various consumer and government applications that can improve Singapore’s economic competitiveness.

Acting US Defense Secretary calls on Asian allies to boost arms spending

Acting U.S. Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan speaking at the IISS Shangri-La Dialogue summit in Singapore on June 1, 2019

SINGAPORE — Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan called on America’s allies in Asia Pacific to invest more in national security — a move that’s reminiscent of U.S. President Donald Trump’s well-worn script to NATO nations on burden-sharing.

Speaking Saturday at the Shangri-La Dialogue in Singapore, Shanahan highlighted an exhaustive list of U.S. contributions to the region before asking allies to commit to more.

“Our government is devoting significant resources to this mission. This is a massive effort,” Shanahan said during his remarks. “Every nation, independent of size, has an important role to play. And like the business of building airplanes, no one nation can go it alone,” the former Boeing executive added.

Figures provided by the London-based think tank International Institute for Strategic Studies, put China’s 2019 defense spending at $176 billion. That’s more than the combined budgets of South Korea, Japan, Australia, Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia and the Philippines.

“People have to invest in themselves. I mean, we are making a sizable investment,” Shanahan told a small group of reporters on Friday. “Now, different countries can do more, and some just don’t have the means and the resources at the time. So, there is not one size fits all but everybody has a responsibility to invest in security,” he added.

When asked about the reaction from partners in the region to a potential spending increase, Shanahan said he expects allies to work with the United States.

“When we are having these conversations it’ll be about asking what’s appropriate for us to help with and what can they do and I think those are natural conversations,” Shanahan said. “I have not found the conversations awkward in the least.”
