WHY THE TIME TO INVEST IN SINGAPORE SAVINGS BONDS MAY BE RIGHT NOW!

Singapore Savings Bonds
Dear readers, commencing this month, the maximum allotment limit per investor for the Singapore Savings Bonds has been raised from $100,000 to $200,000. I believe this is a good piece of news for many retail investors who would wish to grow their monies in a risk-free manner while having the flexibility to withdraw their capital at no penalty anytime. For it means retail investors have another $100,000 to grow their monies risk-free!
However, since the Dec 2018 Singapore Savings Bonds tranche, I have been noticing that the annualized return (based on a 10-year holding period) of the Singapore Savings Bonds have been reducing as detailed below.

Dec-18 : 2.57%

Jan-19: 2.45%

Feb-19: 2.20%

Mar-19:2.18%

I could still recall that the similar return for the Jul 2018 Singapore Savings Bonds is 2.63% and which drew me to my first subscription of the Singapore Savings Bonds)

I expect that the trend of reducing annualized return (based on the 10-year holding period of the Singapore Savings Bonds) to persist, and hence I believe for investors who are keen to invest in the Singapore Savings Bonds, the time to do so is perhaps Now! Anyway, the Singapore Savings Bonds provides the options for investors to redeem earlier tranches of the Singapore Savings Bonds and hence one could consider such a redemption so as to free up liquidity to buy higher-return newer tranches of the bonds.
