What happens when no one buys SSB? Given the super low rate now, will there still be people interested to purchase it? What happens to the bonds if no one purchase it?

I would have expected Astrea VI to be released in June 2020 based on past trend where Astrea IV and Astrea V were both released in June 2018 and June 2019 respectively. I think due to Covid, this listing was delayed. Hopefully in the coming months will we see it getting released.

You will have to sell the bonds on the open market in SGX. Redemption can only be done by the issuer. Your CDP account should be linked to FSM. https://www.sgx.com/fixed-income/retail-fixed-income-securities

I would say that the 'mainstream' Singapore online brokers are already so cheap that fees from a pragmatic view are not any more an issue, POEMS or FSMOne seem fair to me. However think well, If you would really like to buy ABF SG Bond Fund (A35) and SPDR STI (ES3): see the attached 10 y performance chart (versus SP500 ETF VUSA and IWDA), dividend distributions are not included however in these charts. !

You will need to request for a transfer of your Astrea V bonds from your CDP account into your FSMOne account. Drop FSMOne a call or email they should be able to advise you on the procedure / forms needed to perform the transfer. In the meantime, you might want to take a look at the FSMOne's FAQ regarding the transfer of bonds: https://secure.fundsupermart.com/fsm/advice-services/faq/348/

What are your thoughts on excluding bonds in the portfolio of a young investor?

As a 21 years old, I don't see a need to hold bond position in my portfolio as long as I can take the risk.(I'm 100% stocks, 95% invested)I have an ultra long term horizon (hence equities) will become my main way of investing. I diversify into both Income (REITS + Non-REITS) and Growth Stocks (Undervalued + Growth Stocks) so that I capture gains in a downturn and upturn. People like Warren Buffett and Peter Lynch do not own bonds in their portfolios because it is purely a hedge against market downturns, and weighs down your potential upside during uptrends. If you learn from history, you will understand that equities trend upwards in the LONG RUN (provided you have solid businesses). A full equities portfolio will almost ALWAYS beat a portfolio of bonds and equities in the LONG RUN. In conclusion: if you can sleep soundly at night knowing that your portfolio of stocks is down 20%-50%, not panic selling and just stay the course, go full equities. If you are unsure of your risk profile yet, go ahead and buy into some bond ETFs so that your portfolio won't fluctuate too much. When you become more confident, go ahead and sell those bonds and be as aggressive as possible before liabilities/expenses starts to set in in life. Also your portfolio should align with your own personality, risk profile and time horizon. Everyone is different. Different life stage requires different adjustments to your portfolio, I am merely speaking for myself as a young 21 years old investor. Please do your own due diligience!

Hello! I'm 19(F), only started investing recently so my portfolio is rather simple. I'm investing in SYFE's 100% REITs, so I'm basically invested in the top 20 REITs. Portfolio performance was okay until USA had a second wave, but I'm holding this in the long term, so it's alright!

You can consider buying bonds with Endowus. We are using UCITS bond funds that are low cost and more importantly, SGD hedged so you dont take FX risks with your bond investments.

What should a 52-yo conservative investor do with $250K cash?
Hi Anon, absolutely agree you should focus on stable income and if I may add, capital preservation. You shouldn't be taking too much risk on this money. Here's how I would split a conservative portfolio meant for the above. Global Equity - 20% High Quality Fixed Income - 20% Annuities - 40% Gold - 10% Cash/Cash alternative - 10% This will make sure a good portion to be fully guaranteed while a small portion able to provide some long term return to adjust the full portfolio for inflation, while the rest to give some immediate and some deffered lifetime income.

Is it more sustainable to invest one’s finances into bonds as opposed to stocks? Which one generates higher long term ROI?

The theory says higher risk = higher potential return. Wisdom also tells: Diversify! stocks, as well as bonds. In the U.S. often there were traditional standard allocations 70/30 or 60/40% allocations stocks/bonds. The theory says: stocks are risky but for Your (longterm) capital appreciation & bonds are for stability into the portfolio. This even worked during the Covid crisis. There are however warning voices: particularly corporate bonds could be defaulting en masse in the future because of all the debt. I never owned bonds. The bond CAGR is generally very low currently with reliable higher quality bond allocation, with (in the distant future) rising interest rates, there could then be tears. more on what to avoid, good luck: https://seedly.sg/questions/what-is-your-general-investing-philosophy-strategy
