Together with the Bureau of the Treasury, the Philippine Embassy in London cordially invites you to an online financial literacy session on Retail Treasury Bonds (RTBs) Tranche 26 scheduled on 21 November 2021 at 9:30 a.m. via Zoom.
RTBs are fixed-income securities which guarantee the holder quarterly interest payments, computed with a fixed interest rate per annum, over a period of 5.5 years (for Tranche 26). RTBs are low-risk and affordable savings investments and yield higher interest compared to saving accounts and term deposits.
