Singapore Government bonds to start trading on Singapore Exchange

“SINGAPORE: Singapore Government bonds will be made available for trading on the Singapore Exchange by the middle of this year, to provide retail investors with a safe alternative to bank deposits.

This was revealed on Monday by Finance Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam in parliament.

… Mr Tharman also noted that well rated corporate bonds were also becoming more widely available as more high quality corporate borrowers turn to the bond market to meet their financial needs.

He added that some of these bonds were aimed at retail investors.

As a result, Mr Tharman said such bond issuance to be a growing trend in coming years can be expected.”
