 Cash and cash equivalents
The cash and cash equivalents are held with licensed banks and financial institutions. As at the end of the reporting period, the maximum exposure to credit risk is represented by their carrying amounts in the statement of financial position.
These licensed banks and financial institutions have low credit risk. In addition, some of the bank balances are insured by government agencies. Consequently, the SC is of the view that the loss allowance is not material and hence, it is not provided for.
The SC’s investments are mainly in fixed deposits with approved financial institutions and bonds issued by the Government and other government agencies.

Additionally, the debt securities that are managed by external fund managers have a minimum rating of A and above, with an oversight by the Investment Advisory Panel.
25.4 Liquidity risk
