This paper aims to analyse the correlation between stock volatility and the corporate bond yield spreads in the Singapore Bond Market. For analysis purpose and to substantiate the findings the paper will make use of the Real Estate and Banking Sector of Singapore bond market for period of year 2000 - 2010.

Our findings concluded that the stock volatility is significantly correlated with the bond yield spread with an overall positive relationship in the presence of the credit rating and SGS interest rate spread.
