Fixed income government securities are suitable for conservative investors or investors who would like to diversify their existing portfolios. Investors who wish to take advantage of the current economic growth and increasing trust in the national government can purchase securities which are issued by the Bureau of the Treasury such as Treasury Bills (T-bills), Retail Treasury Bonds (RTBs), and Fixed Rate Treasury Notes (FXTNs).
RTBs and FXTNs have higher interest rates than the short-term debt instrument, T-bills. Coupons of the RTBs are credited to clients’ settlement accounts quarterly, which makes it ideal for people who live on their interest. On the other hand, FXTNs pay coupons semi-annually. These securities are listed on the Fixed Income Exchange and can be sold at the prevailing market price.
Investors can purchase government securities through BPI Capital, who is consistently ranked in the Top 5 Fixed Income Brokering Participants list by PDS Group. BPI Capital has an extensive experience in distributing government securities, being involved in nearly every Bureau of the Treasury issuance since 2001.
