Mr Tan, I checked the yields of T-bills on the Phillips POEMS website. There are T-bills available granting yields of slightly more than 1%, with tenor of 80 days or so. That can be an option too.

Hi Mr Tan,

I had visited FSM and the indicative return for NX99100S is @ 1.43%pa. and the maturity is in 3.3mth time.

NX99100S; Coupon 4.375%; Maturity 15/01/2009

My question is if i buy this bond now,

1) is there any potential risk?
2) will I be able to get that ~1.4%pa return when it turn 15Jan2009?
