Stocks under the travel and hospitality industries of Singapore have been rising, especially as Singapore continues to lighten its travel restrictions. According to Singapore Business Review, international travel related companies and global transport companies have been experiencing gains ranging from 1.3-7.6 percent. The expansion of the country’s Vaccine Travel Lane also helped with increasing these stocks and gains by including nine more countries in the program that could connect the country even further with global supply chains while preserving Singapore’s hub status.

The nation was reportedly the fifth highest cross-border capital origin country for hotel assets in the world. Hospitality news authority Hotel Management reported that its investors spend a total of  SGD2.52 billion (USD1.9 billion) on assets on a yearly basis to maintain this spot.

While hotel assets may be considered far riskier investments than other retail, commercial, or residential  spaces, they often have a higher return for investors. This would be the case especially  in gateway cities in the Asia Pacific region due to more factors such as environment, tourism, brands, and hotel operators, Singapore being one of them.

On international grounds, Singaporean investors accounted for a total of 8.9 percent of all United States hotel transactions. USA stands as the country with most Singaporean investments in the hospitality industry, followed by Australia.

Some other destinations most Singaporean investors are looking to invest in are Southeast Asian countries like Malaysia, Thailand, and Indonesia. They are planning to be able to invest in these countries’ hospitality industry to help further their increase of tourists as well.
