[Free Ebook] How should you invest your first $20,000?
We asked 14 Singapore finance bloggers to share what they would do if they could go back in time and invest their first $20,000. They can no longer rewind time, but you can learn from their experience and hopefully start with a better footing.
7 year interest rates at 2.25% today which give us a nice credit premium of 2%.
They did a 100 mio 10 year 4.7% issue earlier this year which I had missed and not not regular issuers these days having come a long way from their over leveraged days.
Wingtai is a household name and most fund managers know them well. I applaud their strategy of sitting this property downturn out much like Capitaland (10 year at 3.8 %) and CDL are doing.
This bond should go down pretty well with investors with its magic 4% handle that is a leap and mile safer than the FCL perp, imo and offers a big pick up over the Lend Lease (Jurong Mall) unrated issue.
