Reason: MAS uses SGS benchmark rates for the current month to calculate SSB interest rates for the next month’s issuance.
For the purpose of calculating the Step-up Coupon rates for Savings Bonds, the one, two, five and ten-year benchmark SGS yields are used as reference. These reference yields will be based on the simple average of the respective daily SGS benchmark yields from the month before the public notice of issuance (the “reference SGS yields”), as provided on the “Daily SGS Prices” page of the SGS website (https://secure.sgs.gov.sg/fdanet/SgsBenchmarkIssuePrices.aspx). Reference SGS yields for tenors between the benchmark issuances are interpolated using a hermite spline function. (Extracted from Para 4.2. of MAS Technical Note on Singapore Savings Bonds)
