Do your homework on debenture rates

Government policy, inflation and other economic variables can all affect the prevailing level of interest rates which in turn affect debenture rates and the resale value of debentures already on issue. Before committing to a debenture investment:

  • seek advice or gain your own understanding of the interest rate outlook
  • compare the rates on offer among new issues with those available on existing debentures being offered on the secondary market.
