Tiger Brokers (Singapore) adds 360 US Treasuries amid investor ‘flight to safety’.

Rick Steves

“In light of higher-for-longer interest rates, elevated inflation and the volatile macroeconomic backdrop, we have seen continued market interest towards US treasuries as these investments are perceived to have relatively low risks. Many investors, including high-net-worth individuals, have also recalibrated their portfolios to favor safer assets amid a ‘flight to safety’.”

Tiger Brokers (Singapore) has expanded its investment portfolio by introducing over 360 US Treasuries on its Tiger Trade platform – a move that caters to investor demand for low-risk investments amidst inflation and economic uncertainties.

The platform now supports advanced technical features such as T+0 trading, T+1 settlement, and rapid execution of limited and market orders.

US treasury bonds, bills, and notes

Launched in response to the growing preference for safe assets, this addition includes US treasury bonds, bills, and notes.

Acknowledging the shift towards safer investments due to the volatile macroeconomic environment, Ian Leong, CEO of Tiger Brokers (Singapore) said: “In light of higher-for-longer interest rates, elevated inflation and the volatile macroeconomic backdrop, we have seen continued market interest towards US treasuries as these investments are perceived to have relatively low risks. Many investors, including high-net-worth individuals, have also recalibrated their portfolios to favor safer assets amid a ‘flight to safety’.

“We keep an ear to the ground to collect customer feedback and identify new areas where we can improve our services and become a world-class broker. In our unwavering commitment to solidify our leadership in Singapore’s financial landscape, we’ve strategically broadened our platform to include a comprehensive range of US treasuries. This deliberate expansion reflects our dedication to offering an extensive suite of investment products, showcasing substantial growth beyond our traditional strength in the US equities domain. Our aim is to offer a diverse array of investment products, becoming a one-stop solution for investors with varying risk profiles and preferences.”

Tiger Brokers also offers ETFs linked to US Treasuries

The inclusion of US Treasuries on Tiger Trade aligns with rising yields in ten-year US Treasury bonds, offering attractive investment opportunities. Leong emphasizes Tiger Brokers’ commitment to expanding services and enhancing customer experience in Singapore’s financial landscape.

The platform also offers ETFs linked to US treasuries, like iShares and SPDR Bloomberg T-Bill ETFs. These options provide varied exposure to US Treasury securities. Tiger Brokers’ technical capabilities set it apart in the industry, offering features like T+0 trading, flexible order types, extended order validity, and quick dividend payments.

The rapid settlement process and order flexibility cater to investors’ needs for speed and strategy adaptation. Tiger Brokers continues to evolve, aiming to meet diverse investment needs and maintain its position as a leading investment platform.
