April 25th, 2012—Singapore—Singapore has been one of the best places to invest in Asia over the past couple of decades and nothing seems to have changed so far in 2012. Although there were fears of an economic slowdown thanks to the debt crisis in Europe, Singapore has performed fairly well in the current year and economic growth is still better than most places around the world. Singapore is also known for being the easiest place to do business and is one of the most livable cities in Asia.
According to SingaporeStartup.com (www.singaporestartup.com), there are several opportunities for investment in the country. Firstly, the Singapore dollar is amongst the favorites for many investors and there are some analysts who believe Singapore dollar would be a good bet for the near future. Stock market in Singapore is also quite strong although news from around Asia and beyond does affect it in the short-term. However, incorporating a company in Singapore remains one of the best ways to invest in Singapore considering foreigners are allowed to own 100% of Singapore based companies and do not even need to reside in the country to manage the business. With a vibrant economy and mature consumer market, innovative companies or those with strong fundamentals can do extremely well in Singapore. Property market in the country has also remained quite strong although the Government tried taking a few measures last year to ensure there was no bubble like situation and rates were not beyond average Singaporeans. However, with high demand and zero capital gains taxes, investment in property by foreigners remains quite high.
As per SingaporeStartup.com, Singapore’s laws also make it quite simple for foreigners to invest in the market and thanks to the stable nature of Singapore in all aspects, many investors are quite comfortable investing in the country and staying invested for the long-term.
