Understand the Difference between Bonds and Shares
Commonly known as fixed income securities, bonds are a form of long term debt issued by governments or companies. The borrower will pay investors regularly through coupon over the period of bond until maturity. Coupon payments are typically paid quarterly, semi-annually or annually.
SGX-listed debt securities are offered to retail investors. These retail bonds are traded on the SGX Main-board similar to how stocks are traded and they can be traded through our trading platform.
