SINGAPORE OCT 2018 SAVINGS BONDS RESULT OUT: A VERY SURPRISING OUTCOME!


Singapore Savings Bonds
Dear readers, the outcome for the application of the Singapore Oct 2018 Savings Bonds was just released! In a very surprising development, this was like one of the very rare occasions in recent issue of the Singapore Savings bonds monthly series that the maximum amount offered was not fully applied: of the S$300 millions of Singapore Savings Bonds on offer, only an approximate of S$248.5 millions of the bonds were applied. And the aforementioned result means that there was no ceilings like $45,000 imposed for the Sep 18 Singapore Savings bonds on the Oct 2018 Singapore Savings bonds. All the individuals received the full amount of the Singapore Savings bonds which they have applied for. Again, this was quite rare for recent Singapore Savings bonds issue.

As I have shared in a previous post on the Oct 2018 Singapore Savings Bond (you can read the post here); the Oct 2018 Singapore Savings Bonds offer the lowest annualized return on a 10-year holding period basis ever since the Jul 2018 issue. The outcome of the Oct 2018 Singapore Savings Bonds means that investors have become more discerning as they may want to choose to park their monies in investment platforms which offers higher rates of returns as compared to the Singapore Savings bonds. But like what I have shared so very often on this blog, Singapore Savings bonds seems to me one of the most unbeatable tools to grow your monies on the markets. As these bonds offers at least 2.4% annualized returns on a 10-years holding period not only risk-free but also they allow investors to liquidate their bonds at any point in time. The above features are second to none on the markets. It is for the above reason that I have recommended investors to scoop up the Singapore Savings bonds once they are still available and at the current rates since it seems to me that the trend of annualized returns from these bonds going down may be a sustained one.

I would be of concern if the lower take-up rate in the Oct 2018 Singapore Savings bonds was due to investors flocking to stocks and other “riskier” investments on the back of higher interest rates since no one knows when the already volatile stocks markets would finally corrected. If so, investors would be caught flat-footed, locked out of their investments and forced to hold or cut their stock losses!
