Are you sure you didn't invest in fixed deposit? Better confirm from them.
No was sure cos the lady brought out my form for me to confirm. It had a column that asked if want your interest to be paid upfront with yes and no boxes. And i saw i clicked NO.

Great one guys. I have learnt a lot reading this thread.

Please, is an individual allowed to TBills say every month. Can one buy tbills every month, is it allowed.

Am looking at saving some funds for a project,but I am not satisfied just having it in a savings account, can I buy tbills every month with it and choose short tenors?

FBNH portal sent mr a message 3 days prior that mine would mature on 29th June. And on 29th June by 10am my account was credited. This was thursday last week. So i figure Thursdays are the days because i hv gotten another message informing me that another one will mature on the 6th this week. And when i checked it is again Thursday!

Thanks a lot!!

For a rough and quick estimate of interest earned, you can use the rule of "72". Divide 72 by the interest rate and that gives you the length of time, the money invested will double. For example, if you invest 5-million at 18%, it will roughly double to 10-million in 4-years. That is assuming you are investing the interest earned annually and not withdrawing it.

Rightly said, it leverages on compound interest.
Awesome principle.

Case close. You asked for your interest to be invested too, so you will benefit from compound interest.

I always click yes so i can do it myselt and still have small pocket money to use. Lol

Yes. There is no limit to the number of times you can invest.

The rule 72 is actually good for 8% interest rate. You add 1 to it for every 3% increase to get the accurate measure.

So if it's 18%, then you don't use 72 but 76.

You were paid your interest right?
Once a form is submitted and everything is confirmed and again you are debited, no extra instructions will be accepted on that investment.

You have to wait till that investment ends to initiate a new one.

Oga na true o.

There's this other investment I do that allow me to compound my interest, the returns over time is like blood money grin grin grin

Learn about Rule Of 72

Compound interest is amazing, and it's only very few investments, like TBills that provides this option. When you see it, grab it.

But you must be disciplined enough to set out an investment plan and follow through.

The "rule of 72" is a simplified way to calculate how long an investment takes to double, given a fixed annual rate of interest. You divide 72 by the annual rate of return you receive on your investments, and that number is a rough estimate of years it takes to double your money.
For example, $1 invested at 10% takes 7.2 years (72 divided by 10) to turn into $2.

You can buy through GTb, but they are not too Treasury Bill friendly like Fbn and stanbic ibtc.

Re: Treasury Bills In Nigeria by amjustme2: 11:55am On Jul 05, 2017
GTBank is good. Go to your branch and as for a Personnel in charge of Treasury Bills/Bonds. Don't involve your account officer, for your own good.
You could go for primary Market Auction and on the form there in an option to roll over interest. Its possible to get 17.6% or slightly higher with GTBank.

You can return to this thread and share your experience or ask further question.

As a humble suggestion, don't expose your portfolio on Nairaland, you could be targeted. , edit your post and take out the amount.

It is about 18%, you can only buy for 364 days and rollover after the maturity for another 364 days.


Assuming an average interest of 15% for the next 4 years your N3 million will grow to about N5.3 million or more.

Ok . One million in ten years at 15% =8,248,427.41 , did i got it ? .

for compound interest,

1,000,000 * (1+15%)^10=4,045,557.7

break down,

assuming u get same 15% yearly, that's 1+0.15 of your principal, P.
2 years would be (1+0.15)(1+0.15) of P
10 years would be (1+0.15)^10 of P

[quote author=ihedioramma post=58081537][/quote]

Let's do d math,

principal, P=5,000,000
assumed interest, I=15%
add 200,000k yearly.
for 20 years

200,000k is 200,000/5,000,000=0.04 of P

=5,000,000*(1+0.15+0.04)^20
=162,147,117.3

for 10 years

=5,000,000*(1+0.15+0.04)^10
=28,473,418.9
