Standard Bank Retail Notes are JSE listed fixed income interest bearing securities that give you access to superior interest rates, previously only available to companies and institutional investors. Retail Notes can be bought and sold (traded) on the JSE with Standard Bank acting as market maker providing liquidity.

Why Retail Notes?

  • They offer potentially better returns than bank deposits and most money-market unit trusts with the same credit risk as Standard Bank deposits
  • They are easy to purchase and sell on the JSE
  • They offer an alternative asset class for retail investors looking to maximise their returns over the medium term, and manage portfolios diversified by asset class
  • They provide stable interest income paid regularly (quarterly)
  • Individuals may use tax exempt interest allowances.
