Because safety and transparency are given top priority, it is quite understandable that bonds distributed by TCBS are often not the bonds with the highest interest rates on the market. However, a lower interest rate of about 0.5 – 1%/year is not a problem in the eyes of investors today. An investment with an attractive enough return and a high level of safety is still considered better than a high return but lacking certainty.
