I think can consider SGX.MBH  (corporate bond quasi-investment grade - ie. ungraded by rating agencies)   or the new Temasek Bond .... 2.7% for 5 years ......

Temasek Bonds pay 2.7%
much better than this HL fixed deposit.

risk is very low, given that temasek is government-linked.
If temasek collapse, no point holding singapore dollars also

I know FD is only insured up to max $50k only.

Presently, the highest interest FD rates for $50k by banks are 1.4% to 1.46%.

I saw HL BANK offers minimum $100,000 FD for 24 months at 1.7%.

Hence my qns is it safe to deposit $100,000 to $150,000 FD for 24 months at 1.7% at HL Bank? (If only $50k cannot get this 1.7% rate, must at least $100,000)

Or is FD rates likely to go even higher next year and so don't put 24 months at 1.7% now??

Any views??!

This month's SSB is yielding around 1.99% on the 1st year.

This is way better than HL's term deposit and several shades safer....

The limitation is how much SSB you are allocated as many people should be pressing at the ATM

So you'll really be stupid to go for HL's term deposit.... bodoh to the max ....  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D .... LMAO
