This is to inform you that the Federal Government of Nigeria Savings Bonds can be bought and sold every day like ordinary stocks starting from a min. investment of N5,000 thereby having a better & active control on Your savings plan.
Definition: FGN Savings Bills (FGN S-Bills) are FGN Savings Bonds with TTM less than or equal to 12 months, for example FGS2019S1, FGS2019S2, FGS2019S4, FGS2019S6 & FGS2019S8 are now S-Bills…
The Key Features of FGN Savings Bonds Bought On Secondary Market are as follows:
- Coupon payments: Quarterly (interest payments 4x in a year) with initial coupon payment depending on the FGN S-bond’s coupon program thus your first coupon payment can be paid in less than 91 days;
- Interest rate: 9.5% – 14.5% p.a
- TTM (time-to-maturity): 8 months – 36 months;
- Purchase/Sales Sizes: Minimum order of NGN 5,000 with additional multiples of NGN 1,000
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, a 13% p.a coupon is greater than a 10% p.a coupon !!!
May-2018 inflation fell further to 11.61% while June-2018 inflation forecast is a further fall to within 10.84% – 11.10%. Average FGN T-bills’ & FGN T-bonds’ secondary market yields stabilized @ 11.9% and @ 13.6% respectively on the FMDQ thus maintaining the developing normal (bullish) local NGN yield curve.
July-2018 ”forecasted” average yield of FGN T-bill, 91-days on the PMA (Primary Auction) is btw 10.0% – 10.5% p.a. and on the FMDQ bond secondary market is btw 12.5% – 13.0% p.a. while the last PMA of N9.42bln of FGN T-bills, 91-days was executed again at a rate of 10% 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, please do not speculate with them !!!
