    Am i right to say this is attractive when compared to other recent corporate bonds?

    Will you recommend this if one has some spare cash and looking for for a short term investment in an instrument with little risk and with reasonable returns?

    I am new to bonds and have bought Capital Mall. May I know do I have to hold the bonds till maturity or can I redeem anytime? If I hold till after 2 years then will I get back my principal amount?

      Dear Lisa,

      Did you buy the bonds of CapitaMall or the shares?

      If you are referring to this particular tranche, you can sell them anytime on the stock exchange.

      If you hold till maturity and the company does not default, you will get back the face value of the bond (which can be different from the amount you paid to buy it depending on what price you paid).

    Yes I’m referring to this particular bond. I bought at issued price so upon maturity will company refund at similar price? If not, then what is price dependent on?

      Hi Adi,

      How are you currently receiving the coupons? By cheque or direct credit to your bank account via a CDP linkup?

      The redemption should be similar.
