Nikko AM STI ETF or ABF Singapore Bond Index Fund?

I am looking to start investing via the POSB Invest Saver in either of the two abovementioned options. I also read that when stocks tank, the value of bonds go up. With this in mind, should I choose to invest in ABF considering that there is news that a recession might be coming? Or does it not matter since I am planning to do this on a long term basis?

“When stock tank, the value of bonds go up” doesn’t always happen in today’s market.

For a starter, it is important for you to verify what you read or hear first before apply it.

Why not both? Like you said they have opposite effects, having both safeguards your interests. That’s what I am doing now if it helps.

Why not consider global ETF and global bonds funds as well?

Limiting to just Singapore exposure is not that ideal to me personally

Return wise Nikko sti is definitely better. But , have you consider Philips income etf which i think is a better etf.

So wrong, better is a overused word. Each etf is different
