Tons! In a nutshell, your SRS monies can be used for
Single Premium Retirement Policies
SG listed stocks/REITS/ETFs
SG Listed bonds
Just don't leave it in the bank doing nothing.
There is no right or wrong answer as to what to deploy your SRS monies in. So I would say that you should take some time to understand all asset classes and what their pros and cons are, before you dive in. Remember that SRS monies are meant for retirement, so you should plan with that in mind.
If it were me, I'd invest in slightly safer instruments. SRS, along with CPF, will form the backbone of my retirement and I'd like just a little more certainity with what I'm going to get. I'll be sharing more during an SRS seminar next week, link's in my profile.

I like iFast a lot because they are a platform which earns fees from various sources. However, one downside is they are a financial platform which means during downturn, people may pull out their funds and iFast may earn lesser.
If you're thinking of investing for the long term, you should consider visiting iFast corporate websites and seeing their latest financial results! During the next crisis, you could also load up VICOM too!
Most importantly, if figuring out how to analyse a company is too time consuming, you could follow Isabel's approach of looking at some stable and attractive policies.
As what many people have pointed out, you can invest in
SGX listed securities
