At Risk N Returns, I’m passionate about promoting sensible DIY investing through sharing my thoughts or documenting my investing journey. While I love to take calculated risks, I recognise that most Singaporeans don’t.
So here’s a relatively risk free way to invest your warchest or emergency funds with almost no lock-up period and generally higher yields than fixed deposits – the Singapore Savings Bond.
Here’s the latest issue details:

The yield curve has pulled away from an inverted yield curve, following the footsteps of the US yield curve. That said, the US Treasury yield curve has dropped due to Jerome Powell’s commitment to suspend interest rate hikes. This has also affected SSB yields, with short term rates falling from 1.95% to 1.88% at present, making short term rates less attractive than prior issues.
