Hungry investors work up an appetite for bonds

When to buy?

Region's debt market running hot and bankers are fighting to do deals


(SINGAPORE) It's as if the floodgates have opened in Asia's debt market as billion-dollar deals are snapped up within hours. It's as if the European crisis of May and June never happened. Investors are clamouring for a slice of the action and many last week had to go away empty handed after bankers had to cut back on allocations .

Temasek Holdings' trailblazing S$1 billion 40-year bond was snapped up in less than two hours.

Heavy demand from insurance companies for longest-dated SGD bond opens a new window



Just only 4.2% returns for 40-year bond was snapped up in less than two hours. It is telling us that fund managers have plenty of money but no balls.  They are telling us that capital preservation is far more important than returns and 4.2% should be enough to pay for their salaries and cover operational expenses. 

Can we still be so bullish?
