Excited By 4.35% Astrea IV Class A-1 Secured Bonds Issue By Temasek???

Read? Saving, Lending and Investing (6)

Before you also caught this fever in the investment blogosphere.

You must clearly understand the difference. Buying bonds is lending money and never about investing.

We lend money to collect coupon/interest and expect Return OF Capital; but can also be unexpectedly zero or 70 to 90% haircut return OF capital.

When we invest; we can collect dividends and expect decent total shareholder Return ON Capital; but can be negative or zero too.

All investment and lending by NATURE is risky!

Saving deposit is insured up to $75K.

No free lunch!

Risk, Return OF capital and Total shareholder Return ON capital made that clear difference. Fully understand who you are and what you want to achieve!

  1. LOL! Issued by Temasek and yet not issued by Temasek :)

    I'll bite if it was straight bond directly issued by TH and not involving any 3rd party sub-assets or sub-vehicles.

    But then if so good, it will be minimum $250K and no need to spend extra money to do paperwork for MAS approval for retail. Haha!
