A Retail Treasury Bond (RTB) is a debt instrument issued by a government to raise funds from the public to finance its expenditure needs. RTBs are designed to be accessible to individual investors making them an attractive option for personal investment portfolios. They offer a fixed interest rate, and because they are backed by the government, they are considered to be low-risk investments. 

Here are 3 reasons to invest in RTBs:

  • Predictable and guaranteed returns: RTBs typically offer fixed interest rates, providing investors with a predictable stream of income over the bond's duration. This can be advantageous for individuals seeking stable returns on their investments.
  • Accessibility: RTBs are designed to be accessible to retail investors, meaning individuals can invest relatively small amounts of money starting at PHP 5,000.
  • Government-backed security: RTBs are backed by the government, making them one of the safest investment options available. The risk of default is low, providing investors with a secure place to park their funds.
