We recently wrote an article on the Singapore Savings Bond.

For those who might be interested in adding Singapore Savings Bond into your portfolio, the application for this month’s bond will close on 27 June 2017. In fact, in a few days time, to be exact.

Here’s how you go about applying for the Singapore Savings Bond.

What You Need?

Before applying, make sure you have two things:

  • A bank account with any local banks in Singapore (DBS/POSB, OCBC or UOB)
  • A CDP securities account that is linked to the bank account you intend to invest with.

One can apply for the Singapore Savings Bond either through two methods:

  • Apply at an ATM near you. The ATM must be that of DBS/POSB, OCBC and UOB.
  • Apply through Internet Banking under Singapore Government Securities. If you are using OCBC, the OCBC mobile application works too!

Remember to have your CDP account number with you when applying. Take note that a minimum investment of $500 is required, and if you wish to invest more, increase in multiple of $500. Each application is capped at $50,000. There will be a $2 transaction fee involved for each application.

Apply Already Then What?

Once you have applied, sit back and relax. The results will be announced after the ” last day to apply date”.

One can take note of the important dates here.

Do note that, if there is an event of over-subscription, meaning more demand than the amount available, one may only find himself investing a portion of the amount he requested for.

The rest of the amount will be returned back to his account.

Other Important Dates
