About Our State Bonds
State Bonds are offered to individual investors on a continuous basis. The minimum amount of an investment is $1,000 and in multiples of $100 thereafter. State Bonds are issued as a fixed term/fixed rate investment. Subject to the bonds being held to maturity, the rate of return for a State Bonds investment is known with certainty. WATC may agree to repurchase State Bonds at its discretion.
To meet the eligibility requirements to purchase State Bonds, applicants must:
be a resident of Australia for taxation purposes, and
maintain an account with a bank, building society or credit union in Australia for receipt of interest and principal payments.
An application may be lodged in the names of individuals either solely or jointly, with up to a maximum of four people, as well as companies and other corporate bodies. Prior to being accepted, applications are validated through an arrangement with the agency Link Market Services Limited to ensure they satisfy Know Your Customer (KYC) requirements, established under Commonwealth Government anti-money laundering and counter terrorist financing legislation. Further information about KYC requirements is provided in WATC’s prospectus below.
