Fixed Income Conference

Many retail investors are seeking ways to improve the return of their savings. Some investors have turned to fixed income investments like bonds to help improve their yield and also diversify their portfolio. Fixed income refers to any type of investment under which the borrower or issuer is obliged to make payments of a fixed amount on a fixed schedule. Many retail investors are attracted by these regular fixed payments. However, do they understand the risks in investing these investments? Do you know how to evaluate an issuer? How do you access the creditworthiness of the issuer? Do you understand the issuer’s business model? How does it affect its credit profile? What questions to ask before investing?

About the SIAS Fixed Income Conference

In recent times, since the collapse of the oil prices, several bond issuers in the oil and gas industry had trouble continuing their operations, which lead to a few bond failures. Many retail investors also failed to understand the risks in investing in these products. The Fixed Income Conference was created as a platform for SIAS, issuers and regulators to educate on retail bonds issued in Singapore. The Conference, which is an annual event that commenced in 2019, brings together experts in the industry to share their knowledge. Investors also have the opportunity to interact and ask questions to issuers and industry experts.
