I may have posted on this before.

This is an ishares ETF with an expense ratio of 0.6%. It is an index of small cap Singapore stocks. Looking over the holdings about 30% appear to be Singapore REITs. In 2013 it yielded over 4% and in 2014 it yielded over 6%. It is well off its high and is trading at about the same price it traded for in Jan 2012. Also in the past year the Singapore dollar has lost about 5% against the US dollar.
This would appear to be a good entry point.
Singapore has become an extremely important Asian City State and Financial and Commercial Center. It is far more beautiful than any American city and I say this as a resident of Portland Oregon.
While there is always the risk of a black swan dropping a nuclear bomb, in my opinion Singapore is an extremely attractive country for which to own a high dividend paying ETF.
