How long shall thou be bonded?

Interesting that SGX appears to have moved quickly to bring Corporate Bonds to the retail market.  I am certainly looking forward to seeing more of such bonds being made available.  However, presuming the yield for SIA is 2.15% for a 5-year term, it wouldn't be very attractive to many. 

Perhaps, if one were comparing against the sub-0.5% of bank savings, there could still be a case to be made. 

Will there be one in the near future at above 4% yield?  Now that would be really exciting.
