What do you guys think about SSB? I feel it may be a good place to park some money as compared to bank savings accounts. It's slightly less liquid as you need 1 month to withdraw but interest rates are a lot better.

I like SSB a lot, I am currently 80% vested in stocks... so gonna put my 20% into SSB and corporate bonds

if bear bear comes and stocks fall 20-30%, can take out SSB and buy cheap blue chips

is this a good idea?

I think is quite good for me as I am looking for places to park my cash other than in OCBC 360. Although it requires one month of notice in order to withdraw the cash, I still feel ok la, since it has zero risk as we can get back our principle (guarantee) so I will go for it

Can't fight inflation though. Would be a great option if it's at least 3%.

None because I don't have so much excess cash. OCBC 360 and UOB One is enough to keep me satisfied

Details of SSB has been encouraging so far.

A well rounded portfolio need stuffs like SSB to balance off the risk we take in equities.
