The Key Features of FGN Treasury/Sukuk Bonds Bought On Secondary Market are as follows:

- TTM (time-to-maturity): 1 yr – 20 yrs;
- FMDQ Purchase/Sales Sizes: Minimum order of NGN 1 MLN with additional multiples of NGN 100,000
TRW Stockbroker Investment Recommendation:
Take note that the best future predictor of Your bond yield (quarterly interest income flow) is your initial coupon level so please try to attain a higher coupon level for Your bond investments. For example, interest cashflow from a 13% p.a coupon is greater than that from a 10% p.a coupon !!!
Aug-2018 inflation was flat @ 11.23% while Sept-2018 inflation forecast to rise to 11.4%. Last week, average FGN T-bills’ & FGN T-bonds’ secondary market yields stabilized @ 13.4% and @ 15.26% respectively on the FMDQ thus maintaining the positive real return and normalization (bullishness) of the local NGN yield curve.
Sept-2018 ”forecasted” average yield of FGN T-bill, 91-days on the PMA (Primary Auction) is 11% p.a. and on the FMDQ secondary market is expected to be av. 10.96% p.a while the last PMA of N5.4bln of FGN T-bills, 91-days was executed again at a rate of 11% p.a
N.B: Take note that 91-day FGN T-bills have similar interest payment structure to the 2-3 yrs FGN S-Bonds. Invest in FGN S-bonds only for savings purposes and as a cheaper alternative to FGN T-bills, please do not speculate with them !!!
Based on the above recommendations and in order to maintain it’s FGN bonds market maker & warehousing role on the NGSE, our ARMF Bond Portfolio (a typical closed fund) is providing the following product options to clients interested in creating/maintaining their own savings scheme:
