Theres is heavy demand for DBS Singapore-dollar perpetual NC7 AT1 issue which went on sale on Wednesday morning.

DBS Group Holdings has set its final price guidance for its Singapore-dollar perpetual NC7 AT1 issue at 3.98 per cent, down from the initial price guidance of 4.375 per cent, following sizzling demand.

The deal has garnered orders of over S$4 billion, said a source.
