Territory Bonds

A government bond is an amount of money lent to the government by an investor. It's also called a security.

An investor gets a fixed rate of interest over a set period of time.

Territory Bonds are a type of bond issued by the Northern Territory Treasury Corporation (NTTC) and guaranteed by the Northern Territory Government.

Money raised from Territory Bonds funds infrastructure and services for the Northern Territory.
