Average return per year %

While September’s bond had lower long-term returns, its 1st and 2nd year returns were higher than that of the August one. October’s, on the other hand, has returns lower across the 10-year tenure compared to September’s.

This may result in a higher allotment amount. September’s ceiling amount was $13,500, an improvement from the previous month’s. We should see a higher ceiling for October given that the tranche size is the same at $900 million while the returns are slightly lower.
