Close to 3 months since I first talked about the Low Risk funds that are liquid and generate good returns in my post – Good returns and Low Risks with Funds that Invest in Singapore Bonds and its great to see that 2 funds have generated over 5% annualised returns in 90 days.
United SGD Fund and Fullerton Short Term Int Rt have gained 1.44% and 1.18% in this period clocking annualised gains of over 6% and 5% annually.
My personal favourite Nikko AM has lagged behind at 2.64% annualised but still much better returns than a bank deposit, Though I must say that mid way I did re-allocate some money to United SGD and Fullerton Funds when the SGD crossed the 1.25 mark against the USD.
I have noticed that these funds generate better returns when SGD is strengthening. Looking at the returns in past 3 months I am going to re-balance my portfolio and move some money from US Equities to these funds before the “Sell in May, Go away” phenomenon hits the wall street. Till then enjoy the gains 🙂
