MAS SGD Term Facility

The MAS SGD Term Facility (“Facility”) serves as a pre-emptive backstop to meet unexpected SGD term funding needs of banks and finance companies. Banks and finance companies will be able to pledge a broad range of marketable securities as collateral in exchange for term SGD funding from MAS. Domestic systemically important banks that are incorporated in Singapore will also be able to pledge eligible residential property loans as collateral at the Facility. The Facility will promote stable SGD liquidity conditions, strengthen the resilience of the banking system and support the lending activities of banks and finance companies.
