Good day All, please is it a good idea to obtain foreign loan at 2% annual interest to invest in Tbills since interest rate is usually 10%-13%? I need candid advise so I can weigh the pros and cons.

The risk is high due to fluctuations of exchange rates.

First of all, you will be hard pressed to get a loan at 2% annual interest rate. It is more likely to be in the high single digits.

In any case, as others have pointed out, you will be exposed to exchange rate risk. So if the naira per dollar/euro exchange rate moves against you (that is, if it goes up) by the time your T-bills mature, you will be exchanging the same amount of naira for less dollars/euros. With the recent increase in interest rates in the US and other countries, investments in those countries are becoming more attractive to foreign investors who have been invested in the Nigerian market and you can see this in the increase in investment outflows over the last couple of months. The Nigerian government has been using foreign reserves to intervene in the forex market to keep the naira stable over the last few months - hence the trend of decreasing foreign reserves. What you propose looks to me like a risky strategy in the current environment particularly if oil prices decrease which will impact our ability to replenish our foreign reserves which we are using to keep the exchange rate stable.

Something you can do is buy dollar futures (which is buying dollars at a particular rate in the future) to hedge against fx risk..
so if you wanted to invest 1000000 naira in the 364 Tbills at say 14%. You will buy dollar futures for the equivalent of what you expect from your investment which is your principal * 1.14 sobthat when it matures you pay for the dollar at the futures rate hence shielding you from the fx risk..
what I don’t know is if your local bank or local banks sell futures to individuals...

If you can do this and still make money then it you essentially have a riskless trade. I think that in reality people will exploit this opportunity and the price of the futures contract will increase (because of increased demand) and as such eliminate the arbitrage opportunity.

...depends on how soon you would start paying back and your repayment plans (flat rate or reducing balance rate).

For reducing balance rate, don't invest the whole sum on a single tenure. You can buy 90 days, 180 days and 364 days.

Anyone with an unlimited access to a loan at zero or extremely low interest rate can become a radical millionaire in 2-3 years with NO work or business. Take the loan and go to bed!

Check again. I hope it is not 2% monthly?
2% monthly is different from 2% annually
2% monthly = 24% yearly. This is the approach by most loan shacks. Zedadvance and the likes will say less than 3% to get their loan. Whatever percentage they charge is monthly.

TheSam:

How much are you applying for? For how long?

The information is required for a valid recommendation. For flat rate however, my advice is to spread your investment over different tenures both at the primary and secondary markets. Remember, the higher the loan, the better.

For example, a one-year loan of N12m at an annual interest rate of 2% would be paid on the basis of paying back N1.02m per month for 12 months.

The interest per month is N20k, and N240k for a year.

Without much calculations, you're sure of making at least 600-700k at the end of the year by simply doing nothing.

If I were you though, I would consider other options (e.g. business). Opportunities like that are very rare.
