Treasury bills are discounted short-term securities issued by the Central Bank on behalf of the Ministry of Finance in order to maintain the current liquidity of the budget.
The bills are sold as discounted securities, in an auction, at a price lower than the nominal value, while they are repaid at nominal value on the maturity date. The difference between the nominal value and the purchase price represents interest earned on the investment.
