Increase in Monthly Issuance Size of Singapore Savings Bonds

Singapore, 2 April 2018… The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) announced today that the monthly issuance size of the Singapore Savings Bond (SSB) programme will be increased from S$150 million to S$200 million from this month. This is in response to the increasing demand for SSB, which saw oversubscriptions1 in two issues since the start of the year. More than S$500 million of SSB have been issued so far this year, and around S$2 billion of SSB will be offered in 2018.

2 The interest rates for the upcoming issue of SSB (SBMay18) can be found on the SSB website2. They are calculated based on the average yields of the Singapore Government Securities (SGS) in March 20183. For this issue, the average return would be 2.39% per year if held till maturity (i.e. 10 years). Individuals who wish to invest in the SBMay18 issue of the SSB may submit applications from 6.00pm on 2 April 2018, to 9.00pm on 25 April 20184.
