Treasury Bills Restriction: True OR False?

There is news that CBN will restrict individuals from participating in Treasury Bills auctions, effective November 29, 2019.


That is not true. The restriction is only for domestic investors in Open Market Operations (OMO) which is a market strictly between the CBN and Banks for managing liquidity. Individuals are safe.


You can still access and invest in Federal Government Treasury Bills (NTBs), either at the Primary market or via Secondary markets channels through us.


Although this directive has caused a decline in the fixed income market, you have nothing to worry about as we have other investment alternatives. Our diverse investment products assist you with properly diversifying your portfolio for possible higher returns.


Some of the juicy options are investments in fundamentally justified equities, fixed placement with very competitive returns, US Dollar investments, ethical investments, GB Pounds investments and real-estate backed investments (with bi-annual returns).
