XTB Price Sheets

Don't stick your head in the sand...

Rates are likely to fall further

Two years ago many of our clients locked in YTMs of around 3.2% via investment-grade XTBs. Many of these same clients wish they had bought more. If interest rates continue to fall, will you look back with regret that you didn't lock in a Vicinity 2027 XTB with a 2.4% YTM?  

Don't forget with XTBs you can lock in a rate today, but trade out if your client needs, or if a further rate cut offers a capital gain. 


YTMAWC maturing 30 JUL 2019

Alumina Ltd 5.50% early maturity 

Alumina has called their bond due to mature on 19 NOV 2019 slightly earlier than the original maturity date. YTMAWC has been an outstanding XTB. It has delivered strong performance to investors since we quoted it in May 2016. It has been one of our most popular XTBs with over $20m in FUM. If you have clients holding YTMAWC now is the time to consider a replacement XTB. If you have any questions call us on 1800 995 993.
