    are sold at a discount and redeemed at the face value of the security. The difference
    represents the interest earned which is paid on maturity date. From their date of issue,
    T-bills usually have tenors of 3 months, 6 months and 1 year.
•   Fixed Rate Treasury Notes (FXTNs)
    FXTNs are medium to long-term peso-denominated securities that are issued by the Bureau of
    Treasury. FXTNs pay out coupons (interest payments) semi-annually and may be traded in the
    secondary market before maturity.
•   Retail Treasury Bonds (RTBs)
    RTBs are medium to long-term peso-denominated securities that are issued by the Bureau of
    Treasury. RTBs are usually issued for tenors up to five years. These pay out coupons quarterly
    and may be traded in the secondary market before maturity.
•   Philippine government-issued eurobonds
    Eurobonds are US dollar or Euro-denominated debt obligations issued by the Republic of the
    Philippines. These are usually referred to as ROPs. The US-dollar denominated eurobonds pay out
    coupons (or interest) semi-annually, while Euro-denominated eurobonds pay out coupons annually.
    Both are traded in the secondary market before maturity.

This is a deposit that allows potentially higher returns vs traditional deposits given a specific payoff profile. The deposit has an embedded option designed to provide a yield enhancement derived from the performance of an underlying asset or benchmark. The product allows one to participate in the performance of various assets with the benefit of principal protection. HSBC distributes this product when they are available. Compare a regular time deposit vs a structured deposit.

Investment Funds Investment Funds
Make our treasury capabilities work for you when you choose from a range of Domestic Instruments that are offered daily:

  •   Money Market Funds
    These funds are invested in money market instruments and short-term fixed income investments.
    Money Market Funds are generally conservative. Its objective is to achieve preservation of capital
    and to generate income over a short to medium-term horizon.
•   Bond Funds (Fixed Income Fund)
    A bond fund is invested in fixed income instruments or bonds. These bonds, which are issued by
    governments and corporations, pay fixed coupons. Since these instruments generally pay fixed
    coupons, they are less risky compared to stocks or equity funds. The objective of Bond Funds
    is to preserve capital while producing a moderate income over the medium to long-term. The
    interest payments of these bonds are reinvested into the fund, allowing a compounding effect
    on the performance and allowing your money to work for you.
•   Equity Funds
    These funds are invested in stocks or the equities market. They have a tendency to be more volatile,
    with valuations changing in line with company developments and market events and expectations.
    Equity funds aim to achieve capital growth over a long period of time.
•   Balanced Funds
    Balanced funds are invested in a combination of equities and bonds. These are usually referred to as
    asset allocation funds given that the fund can invest in both stocks and bonds while employing
    active management between asset classes to achieve the objective of the fund. The risk-return
    characteristics of this type of fund, fall between Equity Funds and Fixed-Income Funds.
