Exchange-traded Australian Government Bonds are available for trading on the Australian Securities Exchange

Exchange-traded Australian Government Bonds commenced trading on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) on 21 May 2013.

On 12 December 2010 the Australian Government announced a package of measures to promote a competitive and sustainable banking system. These measures included assisting the development of a deep and liquid corporate bond market by launching the trading of Australian Government bonds on a securities exchange.

This is expected to provide retail investors with a more visible pricing benchmark for investments they may wish to make in corporate bonds issued by Australian businesses, as well as help further encourage retail investors to consider diversifying their savings through investments in fixed income products like government and corporate bonds.
