12 November 2021, CANBERRA – The Bureau of the Treasury of the Philippines will launch the 26th tranche of the Retail Treasury Bonds (RTB 26) on 16 November 2021. RTBs are fixed-income securities which guarantee the holder quarterly interest payments over a period of 5.5 years. With minimum investment of PHP5,000.00, RTBs are low-risk and affordable savings investment and yield higher interest compared to savings accounts and time deposits.
The Bureau of the Treasury of the Philippines will host an online forum on 22 November 2021 at 6:00 to 7:00 PM (Canberra time) to introduce RTB 26 and discuss opportunities for overseas Filipinos to invest, earn and contribute to Philippine nation-building. Proceeds from the issuance of the RTB will be directed to the country’s emergency, recovery and resiliency funds to support the country following the effects brought about by COVID-19.
The Bureau of the Treasury notes the continued interest of overseas Filipinos in the government’s retail bond offerings. The webinar on 22 November is also part of the Philippine government’s efforts in promoting financial literacy and inclusion among Filipinos. – END
