THE total number of new bond listings, as well as proceeds raised, hit new highs on the Singapore Exchange (SGX) in 2014.
This was amid the low interest rate environment and the search for yield.
In total, 521 bonds were listed in 2014 with total proceeds of S$213 billion. This compares to 465 bonds listed and S$176 billion raised in 2013.
"Apart from traditionally active Korean issuers, the Asian debt capital market remains vibrant with increased participation especially from issuers in Singapore, Japan and India," SGX said in a market update on Wednesday.
