Press Releases 

       

                       Interest Rate change for Prize Bonds announced

The National Treasury Management Agency (NTMA) has announced a change in the variable interest rate used to calculate the prize fund for Prize Bonds.

The Prize Bond prize fund rate is now 0.50% (previously 0.85%) - this is the rate that will be used to calculate the prize fund for August 2017 and will continue until further notice.

The new prize structure is as follows:   the top weekly prize is €50,000 except in the last weekly draw of June and December, when the top prize will be €1 million. Each week there will continue to be 10 prizes of €1,000 and 10 prizes of €500 respectively. The remaining weekly prize fund will be awarded in €50 prizes.

There are no changes to any other State Savings products. For further information please refer to www.StateSavings.ie.

The interest rate reduction reflects changes across the retail savings market and the fall in the cost of borrowing by the State. However, the change also maintains the balance of remaining competitive and providing good value for the holders of Prize Bonds.

All State Savings money is placed directly with the Government and repayment is a direct unconditional obligation of the Government.

Prize Bonds sales of €670.6 million for 2016

and highest fund value ever, at €2.894bn

 

 Thursday, 20th April 2017: 

The Prize Bond Company DAC, which administers Prize Bonds on behalf of the National Treasury Management Agency, today published its 2016 Annual Report.

 Key highlights of 2016 include:

·         Gross sales of €670.6m, up 21.6% on last year;

·         Value of fund at end of 2016 at €2.894bn, up almost 17% on 2015, the highest in the scheme’s history (2015: €2.481bn);

·         Number of cash prizes won by customers at 392,176 (2015: 389,033).

 

Gross sales in 2016 were €670.6 million, reflecting continued customer confidence and attraction to Prize Bonds as a unique and secure investment choice. Repayments of Prize Bonds during the year totalled €252.5 million, representing a marginal decrease of 0.1% on last year’s repayments (2015: €252.8 million). This resulted in a 16.7% increase in the fund value to over €2.894 billion, the highest in the history of the Prize Bond Scheme.

Notwithstanding a reduction of the interest rate used to calculate the Prize Fund in mid-2016 and changes to the prize draw structure, customers continue to win a significant number of  prizes. Currently over 7,000 prizes are issued weekly and the million euro prize draw takes place quarterly.

The number of prizes awarded in 2016 increased by 0.8% to 392,176 (2015: 389,033), while the value of prizes was 3.2% lower at €28 million.

During 2016 The Prize Bond Company made further improvements to its systems and processes, including a new customer database to make repeat purchases easier for customers. Further enhancements, particularly in online services, are planned.

 Mr.  John Daly, Chairman of the Prize Bond Company said: We are pleased with the strong performance of Prize Bonds in 2016; achieving gross sales of over €670 million, growing the value of the fund by 17% and continuing to give customers the opportunity to invest and win prizes.

The continued growth in sales demonstrates customers’ attraction to Prize Bonds. The unique nature of Prize Bonds, whereby customers’ investments are preserved and prizes can be won every week, continues to appeal.”

 At the end of 2016, unclaimed prizes accumulated over the past 59 years amounted to €2.56 million, which represents a small portion of the value of prizes awarded since the launch of the Prize Bond Scheme in 1957. Unclaimed prizes are held indefinitely until claimed by a prizewinner. The complete details of all prizes are included in a database listed on www.StateSavings.ie

 Gross sales in 2015 were €551.5 million, reflecting continued confidence and interest from customers in Prize Bonds as a secure investment option. Repayments of Prize Bonds during the year totalled €252.8 million, representing an increase of 11.3% on last year’s repayments (2014: €227.2 million).

This is why Prize Bonds continue to appeal to customers seeking security of investment.”
