Singapore's corporate bond market has grown in depth and breadth over the past decade. It will continue to be fuelled by Asia's demand for long-term capital to support infrastructure and sustainable growth.
Singapore’s corporate bond market is fully accessible to all issuers and investors globally. There are no capital controls, hedging restrictions, or withholding taxes on qualifying debt securities.
Issuers are supported by an ecosystem of international and regional banks’ debt capital markets teams, lawyers, accountants and rating agencies that provide essential services in issuing a bond.
A wide range of investors including financial institutions, fund managers, insurance companies, private banks and retail investors participates in Singapore’s corporate bond market.
