Retail dollar bonds purchase made easier by LANDBANK

MANILA -- The Land Bank of the Philippines (LANDBANK) has made investing in the Bureau of the Treasury’s (BTr) Retail Onshore Dollar Bonds 2 (RDB 2) more accessible and convenient through a menu of available investment channels for investors here and abroad.

“We are inviting all our investors, especially those with regular dollar flows or those with existing dollar savings, to diversify across currencies by participating in RDB 2. You are not only securing your financial future, but also contributing to our nation's more prosperous tomorrow,” said LANDBANK President and CEO Lynette V. Ortiz during the RDB 2 launch on 27 September 2023.

The RDBs are US dollar-denominated bonds with a coupon rate of 5.75% per annum and a tenor of 5.5 years, maturing on 11 April 2029. The public offer period for RDB 2 will run until 06 October 2023, subject to the discretion of the BTr, with the issue date scheduled on 11 October.

The investment instrument allows investors to mobilize and grow their savings while helping fund the National Government’s priority socioeconomic programs and initiatives.

The investing public may purchase the RDB 2 with a minimum investment of US$200 and increments of US$100 thereafter using either US dollar or Philippine peso accounts through LANDBANK’s investment channels. For investments made via peso accounts, LANDBANK will facilitate the currency conversions based on the prevailing market rate.

Investing in RDB 2 can be completed in as fast as five minutes through the LANDBANK Mobile Banking App (MBA). This feature is also available in the Mobile Banking App of the Overseas Filipino Bank (OFBank)—the official digital bank of the Philippine government and a subsidiary of LANDBANK—making RDB 2 subscription accessible to overseas Filipinos from over 100 countries and territories.

Investors of RDB 2 can also make online placements through the BTr Online Ordering Facility and settle the payments via the LANDBANK Link.BizPortal online payment platform. Over-the-counter placements are likewise accepted in all LANDBANK branches nationwide.

LANDBANK serves as one of the Joint Lead Issue Managers for the RDB 2 issuance, in line with its collective efforts to promote greater financial inclusion and support the National Government’s development agenda. (LANDBANK)
