    Singapore interest rates likely to fall further

    Fed cut and robust Sing$ could push interbank lending rate below 1%

    By Nicholas Fang


    SINGAPOREANS can expect cheaper mortgages but lower savings and fixed deposit rates in the months to come.

    This is after a move by the United States Federal Reserve to slash a key US interest rate last week.

    The Fed had cut three-quarters of a point off its federal funds rate, bringing it to 2.25 per cent, to fight a mushrooming credit crisis and a slowing US economy.

    Economists in Singapore said the lowering of the Fed funds rate will have a knock- on effect in the Republic.

    The Singapore Interbank Offered Rate (Sibor), or the rate at which banks lend to one another, tends to track the Fed rate.

    Citigroup economist Kit Wei Zheng said: 'For Singapore rates, the trend is downwards. We expect the Fed to cut its rate to 1 per cent and Singapore should follow with a lag.'

    He lowered his forecast for the Sibor, estimating it would fall to as low as 0.75 per cent by the end of the third quarter, down from an earlier estimate of 1 per cent.

    A recent report by DBS Group Research also forecast the Sibor would fall, to 0.83 per cent in the second quarter, and remain at that rate through the second half before rising next year.

    The three-month Sibor fell to a 12-month low of 1.25 per cent last Monday, before recovering to 1.425 per cent on Thursday, ahead of the Good Friday public holiday.

    Mr Kit said Singapore rates were also affected by the Singapore dollar's appreciation against the US currency. He said the Singdollar is most probably at the top end of the secret trade-weighted band within which the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) guides the currency.

    'With the Singdollar expected to continue appreciating, MAS will aim to moderate it by flooding the market with liquidity, which will in turn pressure interest rates downwards,' he said.

    OCBC economist Selena Ling said another consequence of the strong Singdollar would be a high inflow of foreign capital into the Republic. 'This can also contribute to lower interest rates.'

    For consumers, the net result is both good and bad.

    Banks recently embarked on a mortgage loan war, with Maybank firing the first salvo last month with an aggressive three-year, fixed-rate package offered at 1.68 per cent for the first year.

    DBS Bank and United Overseas Bank (UOB) have also unveiled attractive packages. UOB has one that offers a zero rate in the first year.

    And with Sibor-linked home loan package rates likely to head south too, it could be a good time to refinance mortgage loans, experts said.

    A DBS spokesman said: 'DBS offers transparent mortgage rates pegged to the Sibor and the CPF Ordinary Account rate, so our rates will move in tandem with market forces.'

    But there is also the possibility that savings and fixed deposit rates could slump as interest rates go down.

    OCBC's vice-president for group wealth management, Mr Fabian Lum, said the bank would review its deposit rates to keep them in line with prevailing market conditions.

    And while the bank has not changed its savings rate recently, it lowered its 12-month fixed deposit rate for amounts between $50,000 and $1 million to 1.2 per cent a year from 1.4 per cent earlier this month.

    DBS said that its savings deposit rates had not been adjusted since 2005, but added that its fixed deposit rates are always pegged to the interbank rate and would thus be adjusted accordingly.

    CIMB-GK economist Song Seng Wun said that the low interest rates did not reflect a lack of liquidity on the part of banks. 'The loans-deposit ratio is still very strong, so banks definitely have the money to lend,' he said.

    'But I think there is greater caution now, after what has happened in the US with the sub-prime crisis, and people are much more cautious nowadays when it comes to borrowing and lending money.'

    U can checked with a few more banks. some banks offer a lower SIBOR + XX than the one you mentioned. Also, DBS gives lower rate than the one you mention (+1.25%). Why not you check with the bank again.

    Hi All,

    I am a mortgage consultant that has been accredited by the Mortgage Finance Association of Singapore (MFAS). I do not charge my clients any fees because the banks pay me a referral fees. I believe that I add more value than most of the property agents because I have a larger panel of banks than they do, and I do comparative analysis for my clients instead of just asking the individual bankers to call them. If you are very busy with work and spending time with family, do you want to deal with 10 bankers from different banks?

    I have access to rates that are unpublished on the banks' websites. Can you imagine how much time you can save by using my free service?

    I welcome people to ask me for advice even if they do not get the loan from me. My aim is to build up my client base through recommendations.

    Hi All,

    Last call for Bank A's packages which are DBS. They are withdrawing packages after June 30, so as of today there is still 6 working days before the Letter of Offer has to be signed by latest, June 30.

    Till date, of the other few big local and foriegn banks, 2 have raised their 3 years fixed rate to 4.18% while another 2 have increased to 3.98%.

    So for people who have bought HDB or Private that are already TOP or nearing TOP in the next 3 months, you may still apply for DBS Fixed 3 years @ 2.98% with 0.75% cash rebate.

    As for those who are currently not with POSB/DBS, whether you are still within lock in or already out of lock in, you may apply for DBS Fixed 3 years @ 2.98% with 0.75% cash rebate.

    For those who have bought BUC properties that are either Deferred Payment or Progressive Payment, you may like to apply for DBS package which is 12M SIBOR + 1% which has no lock in so there is so partial or full redemption penalty for disbursed loans, with only 0.75% cancellation charge for the undisbursed portion. As SIBOR is on the upwards trend with 1.92% as at June 19, if you sign the Letter of Offer in June, you can still enjoy the June 2 SIBOR rate of 1.687%, which brings your rate to 2.687% fixed for 12 months without any lock in penalty, except the cancellation charge of 0.75% for undisbursed portion.

    Since I have already publicised that Bank A is DBS, those who have read are welcome to approach them directly. But if you would like to use my service and let me earn some referral fees, and also for appreciation of me sharing all the information upfront, please contact me, Edward Sim @ 9187 2681 or [email protected] to find out more. I do not charge customers for the service.
