Alternatives

SSB has become very popular lately, becoming something that is increasingly common knowledge. Also creeping into public consciousness are t-bills and Singapore Government Securities bonds, both cousins of SSB and getting spillover attention owing to the constant oversubscription of SSBs of late. A sign of government bonds becoming mainstream, I was queuing for my laksa earlier and overheard a man asking his colleagues if they have bought t-bills.

Those are replacements for SSB somewhat, if you are okay with the tenures offered. Shorter-term investors may do very well with 6 or 12-month t-bills which have been almost 3% p.a. recently. Other alternatives also exist that you may consider:

Even shorter-term alternatives include Bonus$aver account (around one-month in tenure), while those with a longer horizon may want to look at Traded Endowment Policies. You can find more alternatives in the Savings page.
