This bears testament towards our commitment in achieving long-term growth and value for our unitholders, and highlights PLife Reit's resilience despite on-going uncertainties in the macro economy.
"Inclusion in the index will enhance trading liquidity and visibility to investors and index funds worldwide, reaffirming our strong position as one of the largest listed healthcare Reits in Asia."
The counter rose three Singapore cents or 0.78 per cent to S$3.89 on Thursday.
