What is the minimum amount that I have to invest to purchase treasury bill/bonds through CAL?
For buying treasury bills and bonds from CAL’s portfolio in the secondary market, minimum investment value is LKR 1mn.
For buying treasury bills and bonds directly from the auction, minimum bids will have to placed for a face value/maturity value of LKR 5mn and thereafter in multiples of LKR 1mn. (e.g LKR 5mn, 6mn, 7mn face value etc)
Face value of LKR 5mn doesn’t necessarily mean investment value of LKR 5mn. For Tbills investment value will be less than the face value
