where and how can I buy treasury bills/bonds?
« on: Dec 02, 2011, 09:28 PM »
Advertisement
I'm just a small time investor and I'm not confident and brave enough to invest in risky assets like stocks so I just find conservative and less risky alternatives like Mutual funds (specifically bond or money market funds), and time deposits

I am also planning to invest in treasury bills but problem is
I'm not sure where to inquire and buy
Are there brokers for T-bills like in stocks?
Has anyone tried buying t-bills from banks (like Bank of Commerce, BDO, Metrobank, or Philippine Veterans bank) are the bank staff/tellers knowledgeable enough when you inquired about t-bills or they just gave you a blank stare?

Please answer
thank you

I inquired at Metrobank for Treasury Bill (or Treasury Notes).
The minimum is 1 million pesos.    :(
Anything is possible!

wala akong makausap na bank branch officer na knowledgeable sa BPI and BDO. nung tinanong ko sila, nagtanong din sila sa manager tapos yung manager pinatawag lang sila sa phone. so ako, never mind nalang. next time ko na pag-aaral pag kelangan ko na maging conservative type.

Philippine National Bank has treasury bills and bonds. I think their minimum is 400k. I can refer you to their treasury department, if you like. I have a friend there. I can refer you to her.

Treasury Bills are really expensive.

Try to invest in Retail Treasury Bond or RTB, minimum is 5k only. You can invest higher as long as it is divisible by 5k.

PM me for more info ;)

The target clientele of Treasury Bills are institutional investors or high networth individuals who can place large amounts. For a more "affordable" alternative, go for Retail Treasury Bonds or RTBs. Minimum is indeed P5,000 and is offered in most local banks in the Philippines (assuming, of course this is during the RTB offering period).

^ meron naman po sa mutual fund, like gs fund or bond fund.. It is not guaranteed but you can have a return of 7-8%.. 5k lang minimum.. Sa bank mas higher ang required deposit.. :)

^Hi, Kithe! :)

Yes, balak ko rin ang bond mutual fund (I have both equity and balanced sa FAMI). But, yun hindi mutual fund - meron ba ganun na 5k minimum lang? Kahit hindi 5k, kahit 10k etc basta less than 50k. :hihi:

it is a type of mutual fund for the conservative investors. It may give you a good gain than banks usually offer but sometimes you may also lose some money. Lesser yong risk dito kaysa stocks pero lesser than reward compared sa stocks.

Share ko lang tong sa investopedia:

Bond/Income Funds
Income funds are named appropriately: their purpose is to provide current income on a steady basis. When referring to mutual funds, the terms "fixed-income," "bond," and "income" are synonymous. These terms denote funds that invest primarily in government and corporate debt. While fund holdings may appreciate in value, the primary objective of these funds is to provide a steady cashflow to investors. As such, the audience for these funds consists of conservative investors and retirees. (Learn more inIncome Funds 101.)

Bond funds are likely to pay higher returns than certificates of deposit and money market investments, but bond funds aren't without risk. Because there are many different types of bonds, bond funds can vary dramatically depending on where they invest. For example, a fund specializing in high-yield junk bonds is much more risky than a fund that invests in government securities. Furthermore, nearly all bond funds are subject to interest rate risk, which means that if rates go up the value of the fund goes down.
