 Singapore’s latest property tax - now one of the highest among global markets - has dented foreign demand. Foreign buyers bought 57 private apartments in May, down 50% from April, according to Savills Singapore’s analysis of data from the Urban Redevelopment Authority.

In late April, Singapore authorities doubled property levies for foreigners to 60% in a bid to tame soaring home prices. The government said the policy was a preemptive move, as investment demand for residential property is likely to continue to grow otherwise.

Shares of City Developments Ltd. - one of Singapore’s biggest property developers - fell about 1.2% on Tuesday.
