SSB is a safe investment instrument suitable for individual investors for short to long term savings purposes. It is capital guaranteed, and you may redeem early (if needed) with accrued interest and no penalty.

However, if a newer SSB issue has a higher return, the SSBs you bought previously do not automatically enjoy the higher interest rate. To take advantage of any newer SSB issue that gives a higher return, you need to actively swap the existing SSB with the new one. You may also check the health of your SSB portfolio with SSB Portfolio Analyzer.

T-bills and SGS bonds are other types of Singapore Government Securities (SGS) available to individual investors. T-bills have short tenors (6-Month and 1-Year), do not pay coupon/interest and are sold at discount over face value. On the other hand, SGS bonds have longer tenors (2, 5, 10, 15, 20, 30 or 50-Year) and pay coupon/interest every 6 months.

T-bills and SGS bonds can be traded in the secondary market, but their values can rise or fall during their tenors, depending on interest rate movements. Nonetheless, they are capital guaranteed if you buy them in auction and hold to maturity, as you will receive the face (par) value on maturity.

You can participate in an auction by submitting non-competitive or competitive bid. To submit a competitive bid, you need to specify a yield you are willing to accept. We recommend that you keep track of the respective T-bills or SGS bonds details (6-Month, 1, 2, 5, 10, 15, 20, 30, 50-Year), for interest rate trends leading up to the auction date.
