Ie after five years with the Treasury Certificates, the interest is paid taking into account the rates of Treasury bonds to 5 years, practiced on the subscription date. Finally, as in the tenth year the interest will be calculated according to the difference between the yield of Treasury bonds to 5 years and the treasury bonds to 10 years.

Where to Buy Treasury Certificates

Now that those interested will be thinking it will be, but where I can purchase these certificates? In order to be able to invest in this application the Portuguese public debt, the reader will have to open an account in the Management Institute for Treasury and Public Credit, better known as IGCP.
