Annual public service announcement! =)
I used to hold ABF Singapore Bond Index ETF (A35) but I no longer do so.
The first exchange traded fund (“ETF”) bond fund in Singapore, the Fund invests in the constituents of the iBoxx ABF Singapore Bond Index. This index tracks a basket of high-quality bonds issued primarily by the Singapore government and quasi-Singapore government entities.
