Where do the MMF's invest these funds?

Does this still hold true? And where would I get info on returns, for all available instruments, for comparison purposes?

If you go through the daily/weekly bond price list you will notice that most trades are in lots of 100m,anything below this figure is normally traded as an odd lot,buying a bond for let's say 50k or 100k is almost close to impossible as most people who buy such small lots at the primary tend to hold to maturity...I think it's high time someone started a trading desk for small lots...upto maybe 10m.

Commissions are too low for bonds. Not worth the effort. And the paperwork is more than trading equities.

For 100m the commission is 24k on one side of the transaction (0.024%) if am still in the know,when the market is dry some firms can go a whole month without trading a single bond,our traded volumes are still low...the other problem is with settlement confirming the deals takes a lifetime,we should get an efficient system for settlement and things will be easier....ION kumbe Kabando thinks like me...
I support this 100%.

According to the CBK website, there are two 5-year bonds expected to mature in Sep 2014 and a 2-yr bond due in Oct 2014. I will try my hand for the 2-yr one since my lot is abt 300k. Never done it b4 so just testing it to find out how it really works. The coupon rate for that is 12%, but no guarantee that the subsequent one they will float will also be at the same rate.

NSE Launches New Bond System

Highlights

- on-line trading of debt securities

-report both over the counter and on exchange transactions through a centralized reporting system

-It will be much easier for the investor to compare the pricing of debt securities

-ability to integrate with regulators’ surveillance systems and ability to report transactions that are concluded over the counter for purposes of settlement


Quote:
" On the first full day of using the system, the value of bonds traded on the NSE was Kshs.... This is a significant step towards the Exchange’s resolve of ensuring that the secondary market becomes more transparent and the price discovery mechanism is beyond reproach. The multicurrency trading functionality of the new system means that foreign denominated bonds can be traded. With this development, we look forward to the listing of the Government of Kenya Sovereign Bond at the Exchange and the trading of new products such as Derivatives.”

Kabando and Jaindi simply don't get it!

The reason many "small investors" don't put money in T-Bills is NOT because they can't raise sh100k. It's because they don't know how to buy t-bills. In addition, the media [including the likes of Jaindi] have created the false impression that only banks with hundreds of millions of shillings can invest in t-bills.

Secondly, the Jaindi-Kabando types have also created the false impression that t-bills are the highest interest earning deposits available. Again that is so untrue!

If you ask me, if you don't have enough money to make a competitive t-bill bid, just put you money in an MMF. You'll get higher interest and you have access to your money withing 72hrs. With t-bills, you have to wait 12 weeks for the damn thing to mature!

The 20 year bond was auctioned last week at a weighted average of 13.624%. After 10% tax, thats a net of 12.2616% (or 6.1308% every six months)........is there any money market fund giving such a return in Kenya?

Happy Hunting.
