If you didn’t know yet, the My Savings Bonds portal is ready. This means that you no longer have to log in to Central Depository Pte Limited (CDP) to view your Singapore Savings Bonds holdings. I am currently using Stocks Cafe to manage my stock portfolio and Singapore Savings Bonds but the My Savings Bonds portal will serve handy if I only want to view my Singapore Savings Bonds holdings excluding my stock purchases.
When you purchase Singapore Savings Bonds (E.g. via internet banking), the portal automatically gets updated with your purchase once the ballot results are announced.
Through My Savings Bonds, you will be able to:
- View your total holdings of Savings Bonds, purchased using both cash and SRS funds;
- See how much more Savings Bonds you can buy before you hit the Individual Limit;
- Keep track of upcoming interest payments; and
- Compare the interest rates across different Savings Bonds.
Here is a quick pictorial guide that I have done up.
