Information Is Accurate Up To Feb 2024

Business Description

Frasers Hospitality Trust is a hospitality REIT that was listed in 2014 and owns 14 hotel properties across Singapore, Australia, United Kingdom, Germany, Japan and Malaysia.

What I Like About FHT:

  • The management has done a great job with their capital management and the balance sheet health is decent.

What I Do Not Like About FHT:

  • With all hospitality REITs, the dislike comes with regard to the cyclical nature of hospitality properties and also the unpredictability revolving around the post-COVID recovery.

  • Minimum master lease rental per unit has been on a decline post covid, thereby further intensifying the impact and cyclical risk of the property performances to unit holders. (Figure 12)

Updates From Recent Performance (1Q 2024)

General Comments:

  • International travel, though close, had yet recovered to pre-covid levels


Positive Headwinds:

  • RevPARs of all country portfolios were higher Y.O.Y except for SG & UK

  • International tourism is expected to recover to pre-pandemic levels in 2024 thereby providing a higher occupancy rate to FHT properties


Negative Headwinds:

  • SG RevPAR decreased 25.7% Q.O.Q and 16.6 Y.O.Y due to the easing of pent-up demand and the absence of large-scale events (i.e. F1)

  • Capital management ratio worsened slightly due to the impact of a higher cost of borrowing environment
