Pakistan Investment Bonds

Pakistan Investment Bonds issued by Government of Pakistan are a preferred means for a majority of institutional investors to invest their surplus funds for a longer time horizon. This way they are able to lock a higher yield for a relatively long term rather than take the risk of re-pricing after relatively shorter time periods. Furthermore, PIBs are highly secured and risk free as they are guaranteed by the government of Pakistan.

NBP is the leading Primary Dealer for PIBs primarily because of its inventory size and the appetite for such a long-term instrument given its deposit base. While most foreign / private banks would have to go to the secondary market in order to satisfy a large order from an institutional investor, NBP can execute such large orders through its own book. This means that it can offer tight prices for large amounts even under volatile market conditions.
