Reports indicate that interest rates rose from 11.382% to 12.382% in October for 2- and 3-year savings bonds.

Yields on savings bonds have steadily risen since the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) adopted an aggressive monetary policy to fight inflation.

The CBN had raised the interest rate by 400 basis points to 15.5%, which stood at a 17-year high in September 2022.

Rising rates have pushed up interest on savings, affecting FGN bonds currently on the market.

Between May and November 2022, the interest rate of the 2-year FGN savings bond fell from 7.934% to 12.492% per annum, while the 3-year bond fell from 8.934% to 13.492% in during the same period.

The circular indicates that the subscription opening date was November 7, 2022 and closes on November 11, 2022.
