Filed under: business, finance — Tags: , , , , , — caribbeanandworldrecipes @ 10:22 pm

Treasury bills are a reliable investment, and are preferred over many other forms of investment ventures. They give much more interest than a regular savings account.

 

Treasury bills are solid low-risk investments for people of all ages. Earnings from funds invested in treasury notes can be used to create trust funds, or pay for major purchases.

 

You can purchase treasury notes through a Federal Reserve Bank or a stock broker. Buying through a Federal Reserve Bank is cheaper. When buying through a broker, you have to pay commissions and other fees.
