Home / Investment Products / Pag-IBIG Housing Bonds: Tax-free, guaranteed 5% return

 
Stocks, Mutual Funds, Forex, Finance Philippines

Were you able to invest in the Philippine Retail Treasury Bond (RTB) offering last week?

The RTB issuance has been cut short because the government has already raised enough funds. If you were able to invest, good for you. You are now guaranteed a 6.80% net return (if you invested in the 3-year bond) of 7.20% (if you invested in the 5-year bond).

If you were not able to join the offering, don’t fret. There’s another guaranteed, government-backed security although it pays less than the RTB’s.

What are Pag-IBIG Housing Bonds?

Pag-IBIG Housing Bonds (Series 2007) are bonds issued by the government agency Home Development Mutual Fund (HDMF) to finance its housing loan program. The Bonds have a term of 5 years and 1 day. Anyone can invest with a minimum of Php10,000. Other denominations are Php100,000, Php500,000, Php1,000,000 and Php10,000,000. There is no limit as to the amount of Bonds an investor can purchase.

What is the interest rate on the bonds?

The Bonds pay a fixed interest rate of 5% per annum. The interest payments are exempt from the 20% withholding tax.

Earnings are automatically credited every 6 months to the savings account of the bondholder with the Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP) or Land Bank of the Philippines (LBP).

Can I sell the bonds prior to maturity?

I heard I can join a raffle if I invested in the Bonds?
