THE NATIONAL TREASURY Management Agency (NTMA) has completed an auction of Irish Treasury Bills, selling the target amount of €500 million.

Total bids received amounted to €1.46 billion which was 2.9 times the amount on offer.

The Treasury Bills, which have a maturity of three months, were sold at an annualised yield of 0.20 per cent – higher than the 0.12 per cent they got for the bonds sold in May and similar to the 0.19 per cent rate they received for T-bills in April.
