What are investments in Singapore that would provide guaranteed principal and returns?

Investing is not just a business but also a risk and even be considered as a gamble if investors such as myself are not aware of what to invest on. As a new investor I still want to have the feeling of safety and security when it comes to earning as I also need to sustain myself and my family. Are there such things as investments in Singapore that provide guaranteed principals and returns?

    Just like in any country, there aren't many investments that guarantee your principal as well as returns in Singapore but of those that do, you should be very careful of scams. One other thing to understand is that when you get to enjoy such safety in your investments and visibility in your cashflows, you need to be prepared to accept a rate of return that is close to the risk-free rate. Your first bet is to invest on Singapore Government Treasury bills and/or Singapore Government Bonds. You can also try investing on saving plans or fixed deposits but the returns are low. If you want higher returns then you really need to invest on high risk investments.

    Looking to maximize on the number of priority pass visits and other privileges

    HSBC VISA Infinite Credit Card / HSBC Bank Singapore

    If you are like me an HSBC Premier client and also a frequent traveller that can maximize the number of priority pass visits, limo and meet-and-assist services as well as your supplementary cardholders too, then this is the card for you. The reduced general mile earn rate is worth the trade-off for the unlimited priority pass memberships, as well as the high number of limo and meet-and-assist services that you can use.

    Citi Rewards Card / Citibank Singapore

    I am quite very disappointed with this card as I have never received the vouchers for all the points I have accumulated so far. I have on several occasions made complaints via the phone and even in person, but all to no avail. I would not recommend this card to anyone for this reason, i have to say unfortunately.

    Pleasant Rewards

    Citi PremierMiles Visa Card / Citibank Singapore

    In my opinion, this card is one of the best cards in the market especially as there are no expiry date to miles earned and an amazing 2 VIP airport lounge access. I love the fact that the card can be used for major big ticket items and to clock mileage. Redemption can be done easily without hassle and customer service staff are very helpful

    5% year-round cash rebates on dining, groceries, petrol and more

    HSBC Premier MasterCard / HSBC Bank Singapore

    For me nothing beats the 5% year-round cash rebates on dining, groceries, petrol and transport (that is taxis, ride hailing, trains and buses inclusive), locally and overseas when you spend minimum S$600 per month. And the cash rebate is capped at S$150 per month. So if you don’t drive, not to worry as you can enjoy 5% cash rebate for your transportation needs, be it a taxi ride, a booking made via ride hailing apps, or trains/buses.
