the comms for bonds is already worked in the spread. i.e. for new issue bonds, instead of selling u at 100 (par), they sell u at 100.25 each. no other fees to pay.

I'm planning to split my FD funds in half and place to 2 banks, as the depo insurance is only $50K per customer per bank. Shortlisted CIMB as their rate not only attractive, but also fully online and no strings attached like fall below fee, minimum spend etc.

Any recommendation for another bank to look at? I prefer to just rollover my FD instead of transferring to another bank when FD matures. So those with record of competitive rates is preferred.

actually that's my plan as well. going to try to max the allotment over 6 consecutive months (currently at 3 months) and then just collect the coupons every month for the next 10 years.

last month allocation was 40k per head count. So this month should be likely the same if u r cash rich to dump it in.

SSB Max at 100k. ~3 to 5 month will complete.
