August’s Singapore Savings Bond (SSB) is out, and you can apply from now until 26th July 2022 9PM. 3% p.a. for 10-year average returns is an all-time high for Singapore Savings Bond, and even the 1-year return is a decent 2%.

Oversubscription is likely to continue
Singaporeans are hungry for yield, and the oversubscription of SSB observed in June and July is likely to continue. The ceiling amount was a mere $15,000 in June, with some getting $15,500. July’s tranche of $600 million was almost double that of June, but the ceiling amount was marginally higher at $18,000 (with some getting $18,500).
August 2022’s SSB is increased to $700 million this time, and given the attractive rates the maximum ceiling is likely to be under $20,000 per individual.
This poses a pesky issue for people who wish to place large amounts aside into conservative assets like this. I will be exploring some alternatives to SSB over the next few weeks, so stay tuned to my Telegram group if you want great deals and more content like this.
