How do I invest in RSA Retail Savings Bonds?

An RSA Retail Savings Bond is an investment with the Government of South Africa which earns fixed or inflation linked interest for the term of the investment. RSA Retail Savings Bonds are available as:

  • Fixed Rate Retail Savings Bond series consisting of bonds with 2-year, 3-year and 5-year terms. Fixed Rate Retail Savings Bonds earn a market-related fixed interest rate payable on the interest payment dates until maturity. Different interest rates apply to each of the maturities in the series.
  • Inflation Linked Retail Savings Bond series consists of bonds with either a 3-year, 5-year or 10-year maturity. Capital amounts invested in Inflation Linked Retail Savings Bonds are inflation adjusted over the term, and a floating interest rate is payable every 6 months on the interest payment dates.

The minimum amount that can be invested is R1 000.00 and the investment may not exceed R5 million.
