From July 8 2011, you can buy and sell Singapore Government bonds on the Singapore Exchange (SGX).
The bonds are Singapore Government Securities (SGS), debt instruments issued by the Government. They take the form of Treasury bills (T-bills) or bonds.
Since 2009, retail investors have been able to take part in the SGS auctions via ATMs in minimum amounts of $1,000, but to trade them subsequently, they had to do so at selected banks.
Investors will now be able to get SGS bond prices on SGX’s website or through brokers, and trade SGS bonds through their brokers in a manner similar to trading stocks.
A total of 19 notes maturing in two years or more, totalling $74 billion, will be available for trading.
