Just last year, The Federal Reserve made the bold move of slashing interest rates by 150 basis points in two weeks to combat the impact of the pandemic to the economy. Even though lower rates are supposed to be beneficial to the economy, banks’ net interest margin have been pressured and resulted in cutting of interest rates in hopes of saving its own NIM. Savers are at the mercy of the banks when it comes to interest rates. Recently, several savings products popped up to meet the needs of high yield savers.
In this article, we will discuss the feasibility in using such products as an alternative to your usual savings account.
High Yield Savings Account
Be it DBS Multiplier, OCBC 360, UOB One or Standard Chartered’s Bonus$aver. You have chosen your high yield savings account because it meets your daily needs.
I would actually recommend you to stay on as the reduction in interest rate is across almost all accounts. As readers have different needs, it will be difficult for me to recommend the specific accounts. Therefore, you might use an online tool such as the savings account calculator by Seedly. You can use this tool to determine whether you would like to stay on with your current savings account or to try out another savings account that gives slightly higher interest based on your needs.
However, depending on how much more interest you can eek out from trying out another savings account, it is all about whether the change is worth and also whether it caused any additional inconvenience such as shortage of ATMs for withdrawal and deposits. So, it is not necessary for one to change for better savings but cause additional inconvenience.
Understand Cash Management
You might have heard of the saying “do not put all your eggs in one basket”, this saying is relevant in the context of where to keep your cash. Before Cash Management became popular among retail investors in Singapore, almost all will have their money in different banks.
A report explains the risk of depositing money in a bank. In the case of a bank were to fail, depositors will face credit risk from the insolvent bank when they are not able to get back their deposits. Singapore Deposit Insurance Corporation was introduced in 2006 to safeguard depositors’ monies. It insures up to $75,000 in the event a Deposit Insurance member fails. For an individual to be covered under SDIC for more than $75,000, it has to open many bank accounts with other DI members and spread the deposits into different DI members.
However, in this low interest rate environment, where many banks have already started reducing its interest rate on savings accounts, Cash Management comes into handy as an alternative for yield hungry savers. Please note that Cash Management Solutions are investment accounts that are not insured by SDIC.
Cash Management in Singapore got popular recently when Stashaway introduced its own called Stashaway Simple. Roboadvisors such as Stashaway, Syfe, Endowus and Moneyowl invest in clients’ funds in Cash Fund, Money Market Fund and Short Duration Bond Fund.
The underlying asset of Cash Fund like the one being invested in Endowus Cash Smart and MoneyOwl invests in a diversified portfolio of institutional bank fixed deposits. It has the lowest risk among the funds mentioned above with a maximum drawdown of 0.01% using historical data.
Both Endowus Cash Smart and Stashaway Simple invest in Money Market Fund where its underlying assets consist of institutional bank fixed deposits, high quality investment-grade and very short duration government and corporate debt instruments. Money Market Fund carries slightly higher risk compared to Cash Fund where its maximum drawdown based on historical data is 0.05%.
With the arrival of EndowUs Cash Smart, it exposes retail investors to investing in Short Duration Bond Fund. As the name implies, Short Duration Bond Fund invests in a diversified portfolio of institutional bank fixed deposits, high quality and investment-grade short duration government and corporate debt instruments. Short Duration Bond Fund carries the highest risk among the three funds with a maximum drawdown of around 2% based on historical data.

The fund’s Yield to Worst and Average duration stand at 1.8% and 2 years respectively. The fund’s average credit rating is BBB, which is second to the lowest rating of an investment grade bond rating. This is due to the fact that about 67% of its holdings have a credit rating of BBB while only 30% of its holdings have a credit rating of A.

The fund’s weighted Yield to Maturity and weighted duration stand at 4.14% and 3.39 years respectively, with the fund’s weighted credit rating at BBB.

PIMCO Low Duration Income Fund

The fund does not aim to have the highest yield but to provide the most favourable risk-adjusted returns and balances downside risks, thus providing good exposure to investors looking for relatively safe and attractive income and capital gain opportunities.

Best Alternative Savings Product – Insurance Savings Plan
Singlife Account is an insurance savings plan that credits interest and offers flexibility to make top ups and withdrawals with no lock-in and charges. The Singlife Account also provides insurance coverage to policyholders in the event of death and terminal illness. You will also receive a Singlife Visa Debit Card for any contactless payment where you can use it overseas too.
Singlife is the only insurance savings plan in the market where its returns are not guaranteed. From 1 July 2021, the rate of return for the first $10k will be 1% and 0.5% for the next $90k. However, You can earn up to 2% for the first $10k if you spend a minimum of $500 each month and sign up for a Grow policy and fund a minimum of S$1,000.
The Save, Spend, Earn campaign remains unchanged and will continue until 31 December 2021. To qualify for the bonus return of 0.5% p.a., you would need to spend a minimum of S$500 each month. You can track whether you have spent enough to qualify via your Card Spend Tracker in app. This bonus is only applicable for the first $10k.
Singlife is offering Grow Bonus Return campaign where it is offering a bonus of 0.5% to encourage users to consider investing their funds in Singlife Grow. Users have to minimally deposit funds worth at least $1000 to qualify for the campaign. More information will be released on 1 July 2021.
Out of all insurance savings plans discussed in this post, Singlife is the most flexible in terms of withdrawal. It does not have any lock up period like the ones from Elastiq. Singlife accepts a minimum withdrawal of $1 to your designated bank account without any fees like the ones from Dash EasyEarn. Withdrawal is done using FAST and funds are credited almost instantly.
In addition, you get a complimentary Singlife Visa Debit Card where you can make contactless payment and even overseas transactions. For overseas transactions, you can choose to pay in foreign currencies, in which Singlife Visa Debit Card offers Visa’s competitive exchange rate with no FX fees or charges. You can also choose to pay in SGD for overseas transactions. Transactions will be converted to SGD via dynamic currency conversion, offered at selected merchants or websites.
Besides being functioned as an alternative to high yield savings accounts, Singlife provides life insurance coverage of up to 105% of Singlife Account Value and retrenchment benefits. One is eligible for retrenchment benefits for a period of three months, up to a total payout of S$10,000, provided you have been retrenched and remain unemployed for at least four months following the date of retrenchment.
My thoughts: Ranking Singlife is very subjective because it really depends on how you are going to use the account.
If you are only looking at parking your excess cash in higher yield savings product, you would rank Singlife as the second best Insurance Savings Plan avaialble in the market. This is because Singtel Dash PET’s rate of return is 1.3% compared to 1.0% by Singlife.
However, if your current spending style allows you to spend at least $500 each month, you will be able to receive 1.5% rate of return for the first $10k, which is higher than what Singtel Dash PET is offering then you can rank it as your best Insurance Savings Plan.
Furthermore, as there is no additional cost to withdraw from Singlife, I think this account would be better use to keep your emergency fund.
#1 Singtel Dash PET
Singtel’s Dash PET is an insurance savings plan by Etiqa Insurance that is open to eligible Dash users to earn higher returns while enjoying the flexibility of anytime top-ups, withdrawals with no lock-in period of penalty. Dash PET also offers insurance coverage in the event of death.
With Singtel Dash PET, you can earn as high as 1.3% per annum (since 27 April 2021) on your savings. Interest is calculated based on the daily Account value and credited into the Account value at the end of each calendar month. If the average daily Account value for the month falls below S$50, no interest will be credited for the month.
From 27 April 2021, Singtel Dash PET will be introducing a new tranche that will still let you save at a high return rate of up to 1.3% p.a. for the first year. Existing Dash PET users who sign up before 27 April 2021 will continue to enjoy up to 1.7% p.a. for the first year starting from your policy start date, including subsequent top-ups.
The 1.3% per annum returns is applicable for the first $10k while the minimum initial sum to open Dash PET is $50, in multiples of $1. The maximum aggregate amount for all Top-up(s) per policy is S$30,000 less the single premium paid, plus all partial withdrawal(s) and transaction fee(s). All top up can be done using Dash Wallet, Bank Account via PayNow or Bank Account via eNets (minimum $50 required).
Dash PET like its predecessor Dash EasyEarn does not have lock-up period. One can partial withdrawal any amount from their plan anytime. They can either withdraw to their Dash wallet account with no charges or to their bank account via PayNow at a fee of $0.70 per transaction, deducted from Dash PET plan. The minimum amount to withdraw is $1, and in multiples of $1 per withdrawal. It is important to note that one has to maintain at least $50 average daily account value to enjoy the returns and benefits of the plan and the entitlement of interest crediting at the end of the policy month.
Besides being functioned as an alternative to high yield savings accounts, Dash PET has a death benefit of 105% of Account Value. Once this payment has been made, the policy ends.
My thoughts: First of all, Dasy PET like its predecessor Dash EasyEarn is capital guaranteed as it is protected under the Policy Owners’ Protection Scheme, administered by the SDIC. There is no lock-in period which I really like about it.
I do not mind mixing some of my day-to-day-expenses fund with my emergency fund in Dash PET as I can withdraw a minimum $1, in multiples of $1 every month to my virtual Dash Visa Card for contactless payment.
Therefore, I decided to rank Singtel Dash PET as the best insurance savings product to consider as an alternative to bank savings accounts, on the fact that it has guaranteed rate of return for the year.
Best Alternative Savings Product – Cash Management Solutions
#3 Endowus Cash Smart
Endowus joined Stashaway to introduce Cash Management service to retail investors. Endowus Cash Smart consists of three subproducts – Core, Enhanced and Ultra. The only fee that is charged by Endowus will be the Access Fee of 0.05% per annum, which I believe is reasonable. Like Stashaway, Endowus rebates the entire trailer it receives thus lowering the fund expense ratio it invests with clients’ funds. The projected return for Core, Enhanced and Ultra after fees are 0.7% to 0.9%, 1.1% to 1.3% and 1.8% to 2.0% per annum respectively.
Endowus Cash Smart Core
Endowus Cash Smart Core is the safest out of the subproducts offered under Endowus Cash Smart. This is because 50% of what’s invested in Core is in Fullerton SGD Cash Fund where the fund invests in institutional fixed deposits placed in banks in Singapore such as Qatar National Bank Singapore with a short deposit duration of about 1 month. Core yield is further enhanced by investing the remaining 50% in LionGlobal SGD Enhanced Liquidity where the fund invests in high quality short term debt instruments and aims to maintain a portfolio credit rating of A-. Furthermore, it has the lowest maximum drawdown of 0.05% recorded in January 2019 and only took 6 days to recover.
Endowus Cash Smart Enhanced
Endowus Cash Smart invests half of its portfolio in LionGlobal SGD Enhanced Liquidity Fund and invests the remaining in UOB United SGD Fund. The former invests in high quality short term debt instruments while the latter invests in money market and short term interest bearing debt instruments and bank deposits. Without the disclosure of UOB United SGD Fund’s credit rating, I strongly believe that the YTM of 1.77% is too low to compensate for the risk of holding the top 5 holdings which are unfamiliar to most retail investors. On the flipside, I much prefer LionGlobal SGD Enhanced Liquidity Fund for its “A” credit rating and its top 10 holdings, constituting 18.4% of the fund holds familiar bonds and bills from CapitaLand and MAS.
Endowus Cash Smart Ultra
The Endowus Cash Smart Ultra is a dynamically managed cash management portfolio that aims to have a targeted yield of 1.8-2% by maximising yields while minimising volatility and downside risk through the careful selection of underlying funds and optimising the portfolio covariance. Endowus has carefully selected best-in-class short duration bond funds and money market funds available from the leading money managers such as Fullerton Fund Management, Lion Global Investors, Nikko AM, PIMCO, UOB AM to create a low volatility and high yielding cash management solutions portfolio.
The Endowus Cash Smart Ultra consists of five short duration bond funds such as LionGlobal Enhanced Liquidity Fund, Fullerton Short Term Interest Rate Fund, LionGlobal Short Duration Fund, Nikko Shenton Income Fund and PIMCO Low Duration Income Fund. All of the funds used in Endowus Cash Smart Ultra invest in a broadly diversified portfolio of high quality debt instruments and some funds have higher returns than others to compensate for the risks of holding foreign issued bonds or lower investment grade bonds. They are investment grade, though most of the funds credit rating are near the bottom of investment grade bond credit rating of BBB-. Any rating below BBB- will be junk bonds.
With the introduction of Endowus Cash Smart Ultra, we might be tempted to opt for the Ultra so that our funds can yield a projected annual return of 1.8-2%. The question one should ask themself is whether they are taking on too much risk just to improve their funds returns by 0.5-0.6%. A look at the image below shows the maximum drawdown ever recorded since funds inception. Cash Smart Core, with a projected annual return of 0.8-1.0%, has a maximum drawdown of 0.05% and took 6 days to recover from the trough. Cash Smart Enhanced, with a projected annual return of 1.2-1.5%, has a maximum drawdown of 0.92% and took 57 days (about 2 months) to recover from the trough. Cash Smart Ultra has a maximum drawdown of 2.59% and took 100 days (about 4 months) to recover from trough and its projected annual return is 1.8-2.0%.
I believe that investors should not be taking too much risk on investing their cash in cash management solutions. However, to each their own, as it depends on the individual’s risk appetite on such a product. It is important to identify which Endowus Cash Smart is suitable for which particular funds’ needs. Taking note of the number of days to recover and receive cash upon withdrawal, I would put funds that I need in the short term in Core and my excess cash in Enhanced.
For all Cash Management Solution products, it takes about 3 business days for the funds to be credited into our bank account upon submitting a withdrawal request. I will not recommend putting your day to day expenses into any Cash Management but would suggest putting funds needed in the near future in Core or Enhanced. I believe that the risk to returns ratio of Ultra is too high for one to consider, unless they do not need the cash in the short term.
Therefore, I decided to rank Endowus Cash Smart as the third best cash management solutions product in the market.
#2 Stashaway Simple
Stashaway is the first robo-advisor in Singapore to introduce Cash Management to retail investors. Stashaway Simple invests half of its clients’ funds into LionGlobal SGD Money Market Fund and the remaining into LionGlobal SGD Enhanced Liquidity Fund for further yield enhancement. The similarity between Stashaway Simple and Endowus Cash Smart is the use of LionGlobal SGD Enhanced Liquidity Fund. You may refer to the previous section for explanation.
I would compare Stashaway Simple with Endowus Cash Smart Enhanced due to the similarity in projected annual return of about 1.0-1.2% for both. The difference between Stashaway Simple and Endowus Cash Smart Enhanced will be that Stashaway Simple uses LionGlobal SGD Money Market Fund while Endowus Cash Smart Enhanced uses UOB United SGD Fund. I much prefer the holdings of former as there are familiar names in their top holdings such as Mapletree Treasury, Ascendas Reit, MAS Bill and Singapore Airlines. Though the latter has the same credit rating as the former, my personal preference would be to invest in companies that I know, thus my preference in the former. For all Cash Management Solution products, it takes about 3 business days for the funds to be credited into our bank account upon submitting a withdrawal request. I will not recommend putting your day to day expenses into any Cash Management
Therefore, I decided to rank Stashaway Simple as the second best cash management solutions product in the market.
#1 Syfe Cash+
Lately, Syfe joins its other Robo-Advisors competitors to introduce its own cash management portfolio called Syfe Cash+.
Features about Syfe Cash+
- Projected returns: 1.5%
- Provides daily accrual of returns – you will be able to see your savings grow every day.
- No lock up periods, you can withdraw anytime and get to keep all returns accumulated during the period you invest in Cash+. Withdrawal takes about 2-3 working days to process.
- No Syfe management fees
Syfe uses funds from LionGlobal, the largest asset managers in Southeast Asia, owned by OCBC to construct its Syfe Cash+ portfolio. It allocates 30% of its portfolio into LionGlobal SGD Money Market Fund, 35% into LionGlobal SGD Enhanced Liquidity Fund and the remaining 35% into LionGlobal Short Duration Bond Fund. Underlying portfolio of Syfe Cash+ is similar to Stashaway Simple but the difference between the both products is that Syfe Cash+ invests 35% into LionGlobal Short Duration Bond Fund for further enhancement to its returns. You may refer to the previous section for further explanation on the funds used by Syfe Cash+.
If comparing among cash management solutions, I believe that Syfe Cash+ is the best cash management solutions available in the market. The projected returns currently stands at 1.5%, the highest for cash management solutions. However, there is no guarantee that Syfe will be able to maintain the projected returns as seen on Endowus Cash Smart and Stashaway Simple. Upon withdrawal request, it takes about 2-3 business days for it to be credited into a bank account so it is not advisable for day to day expenses fund to be parked in cash management.
Therefore, I decided to rank Syfe Cash+ as the best cash management solutions product in the market.

For readers who failed to enter a referral code upon registration, they have up to 14 days to enter the referral code – SRPSRBJRS directly through the “Account Settings” tab of their Syfe dashboard. You may refer to the screenshot above on where you can include the referral code.
The referral code will help keep the site financially sustainable.
How do I stash my cash?
Singlife continues to be undefeated in terms of liquidity even with the introduction of Syfe Cash+, this is due to the fact that it does not have additional cost of withdrawing money from account to your bank account. Therefore, Singlife Account could be a better account to be used to park your emergency fund.
Even though Standard Chartered’s Jumpstart has cut its interest rate for the second time, I am still keeping some money in the account as this is where I keep my capital for investments. This is because I still require the liquidity of what a bank can offer which other alternative products (even for Singlife) cannot replicate yet. If all my capital for investment has been fully deployed, then I will consider GIGANTIQ or Singtel’s Dash PET.
I will prioritise cash management solutions last as the time taken to receive the payout is longer than the ones offered by insurance savings plans. If you were to let me choose between Cash Management Solutions, I will definitely put some money in Syfe Cash+. The money you should put in cash management solutions should not be used for everyday’s life as its purpose is not to replace your ordinary bank account. Therefore, I recommend putting money you are not going to use for the short term in it and that you will not need to use it urgently when needed (in view of the time taken to receive the payout).

Hi Frugal. I am a retiree looking for a safe instrument to park cash while receiving some cash or passive income periodically to fund my living expenses, something like a bond coupon or reits’ dividend. Capital appreciation is secondary. I see so many items in the article and not sure which one can meet my requirement. Can you provide some advise?
Hi, I think Insurance Savings Plan like Singtel Dash Pet and Singlife would be a better choice.
I don’t understand the ranking difference between syfe stashaway and endowus, especially since endowus offers the widest range of solution available.
And it leaves a very bad taste in my mouth when syfe revised their rates so quickly after their launch at 1.75% p.a.
Hi Steven, it is in my
opinion that Endowus Cash Smart Ultra underlying asset is too risky for the returns one will get.
Cash management solutions rates are not guaranteed as it depends on how the overall market is performing in terms of interest rates
