I’m relatively new investor. Can someone please clear some of my doubts regarding SGB.
- There is going to be a new issue for SGB on April 20th, should I invest in that or buy previously issued SGB?
- How do I buy previously issued SGB from secondary market, and how will it show up in my Zerodha Kite portal (demat account)?
- For applying to newer issues of SGB, do I have to visit zerodha/gold? If not how to apply? On zerodha/gold, it’s available for buying even right now, even though the issue has not yet started.
For previously issues SGB , do we get the 2.5% interest also every 6 months?
Yes… it is 2.5% annually which means 1.25% every 6 months…
