If you’re looking for a lower risk investment that can still provide highly competitive rates of return, then you may be interested in our new short-term bonds. The Argyle Group short-term bond offers investors a flexible alternative to our longer-duration bonds providing a more liquid option that matures in just six months.
Like our longer-term options, the six-month Argyle Bond is secured by rare and precious Argyle pink diamonds from the Argyle mine in Australia. Due to the imminent closure of the Argyle Mine, which is scheduled to cease all operations by 2020, the value of pink diamonds has appreciated by more than 10% per annum for the last decade and is expected to continue to rise the close we get to the mine’s closure. This is why we can afford to pay out excellent dividend rates over a short period. Our six-month bond pays two dividends of 5% each quarter making it a highly competitive option that compares very favourably to many other short-term fixed rate bonds available on the market. Currently we are the only company in the UK that are licensed to issue
Short term bonds typically offer slightly lower interest rates than long term bonds however, they are considered much less of a risk and their fast maturity helps to offset some of the volatility associated with longer-term bonds. Short-term bonds are less sensitive to rising inflation rates which makes them less of a credit risk and an attractive proposition for investors looking to diversify their portfolio. With banks currently offering particularly low interest rates, and uncertainty surrounding many traditional investments due to the ongoing Brexit discussions, short-term bonds allow you to receive yields that you wouldn’t expect from mostsavings accounts. Here are just some of the benefits offered by short-term bonds:
