Hi Maka and others.
We eventually have a 2 year Bond - my favorite.
The Yield Curve suggests a coupon of 10.75%
Any up or downside on this in your opinion ?
Thanks

Why buy this bond yet 1 year t-bill is just about this price & when compounded would surpass this return.

If the 2 year comes at that implied yield of 10.75%
it will be better than reinvesting the 364 day at current rates of 9.58% by around 15k.....

Thanks @ Angelica_ann & Maka, for your input.
My BIGGEST problem if the inefficiency of CBK.
I have been investing in Bonds since 1975.
I was living in Nairobi and my office was very close to CBK.
However, I retired in 2005.
To get out of the hassle of living in Nairobi, with no job, I moved the the North Coast near Kilifi.
Therefore, every time, I need to rollover a maturing Bond/ Bill, or buy a new one, I need to travel all the way to Mombasa CBD, about 60Kms. The Mombasa CBD is worse than Nairobi in terms of traffic and general drivers - with hundreds of Boda Bodas and Tuk Tuks.
Therefore I prefer bonds - specially 2 years.
The reason? I am 71 years old, and will only invest in short term Bonds.
My questions:
- Why can't CBK make it easier for regular investors to put their bids online.
- Why can't I have have online access to my account. I currently have about 15 Bonds & Bills.
- I can't even request a statement online or by phone. I have to fill a form and deliver it to CBK.

I can do ALL the above and more online on my SCB & I & M accounts.

Rant over.

Very sad indeed, am based Dubai and my last two T-bills Rollover didn't go through even after indicating am applying from Dubai. Reason I think cause CBK doesn't have a dedicated counter/person/email for diaspora applications. It all depends on the good will of the person reading your mail first from that group email.

This is a challenge to all of us who live far from cbk offices.I have experienced the same.
What I did for my case recently,was to plead with the first guy who picked my call.After explaining my long distance,he sent me the bond application form by email.I then downloaded it filled it and scanned it back to him.I was glad it went through.I recently received my statement and saw the bond I purchased.
To make sure that I will need him again in future,I took his private mobile number.Alafu nikamtumia kabamba kwa mpesa ya kusema hasante ndio siku ingine asinilenge nikimhitaji.Laughing out loudly Laughing out loudly

Mumbradhee,

The billion shilling questions are;

1. Do your envelopes containing your statements and or withholding certificates sometime have shoeprints on them?
2. Are unanswered phonecalls a staple for you at CBK?
3. Does dealing with CBK seem like wrestling a stone age Tyrannosaurus?

If your answer is yep yep yep to any or all, then please stand in line with the rest of us in the CBK complaint queue where NOTHING about the above has been resolved over the past 20 years!

The only thing CBK does well is deposit payments in account pap on time on the dot every single time. Hakuna kengine.
