Alfred Nuwagaba


The study was about analysis of bond market performance in Rwanda. It dealt with the period of six months from October 2012 to February 2013. The bonds floated on the Rwanda stock exchange are both treasury bonds and corporate bonds. For the four treasury bonds issued in 2010 and 2011, it is only RW000A1GQRQ1 issued in 2010 that has generate sales of 99, 900,000 RWF and non for BCR corporate bond. This could be attributed to terms on YTM, coupon rates, and the maturity period for the bonds. The bond market is still poor in Rwanda and not attractive.
