As we approach December and is waiting for our 13th Month pay (hopefully it will not be cancelled because of the pandemic). We can park some funds to this investment vehicle for at least a year and earn some juicy interests.

 

Depending on the amount of your investment, the interest earned may not be much. However, 1.25% annual rate is far more bigger than the 0.125% offered by bank's regular savings account.

 

 

 

Why Invest in Premyo Bonds?

 

Since this is a debt obligation issued by the government, it is considered low-risk and the promise of repayment is set in stone when the investment reaches maturity date.

 

Unlike stocks that is prone to fluctuations, government bonds repayment is fixed regardless of the economic state in 2021.
