Mr Tan,

I don’t find the information you are looking for on the pasir ris town council reports (maybe I am not reading the reports correctly). However, the below link should answer your queries.

Extract as per below:

1. How much of the Town Council fund was affected by the Lehman’s linked product ?

Our Town Council invested $4 million (2.7%) of the Town Council fund in Minibond
Series 2 and 3.

To be honest, I am a bit shocked to see the amount of investments the town council are having. $4m is only 2.7% of the investments, so that would equate their total investments to be approx $148 mil. They are not investments firms, are they? If there are surplus, should it not be returned to citizens, maybe as conservancy rebates?
