Oman’s central bank raised OMR31.57 million by way of allotting treasury bills on Tuesday.
The treasury bills are for a maturity period of 91 days, from December 18, 2018 until March 20, 2019. The average accepted price reached 99.421 for every OMR100, and the minimum accepted price arrived at 99.420 per OMR100. Whereas the average discount rate and the average yield reached 2.32139 per cent and 2.33490 per cent, respectively.
The interest rate on the Repo operations with CBO is 2.970 per cent while the discount rate on the Treasury Bills Discounting Facility with CBO is 3.720 per cent, for the same period.
The treasury bills are short-term highly secured financial instruments issued by the CBO on behalf of the Government, which helps the licensed commercial banks to gainfully invest their surplus funds, with added advantage of ready liquidity through discounting and repurchase facilities (Repo) offered by the Central Bank.
Further, treasury bills promote the local money market by creating a benchmark yield curve for short-term interest rates. Also, the Government (MOF) may also resort to this instrument whenever felt necessary for financing its recurrent expenditures.
