Since the re-launch of the savings bonds programme in June 2015, the Central Bank has sold more than $110,000,000 (nominal value) in savings bonds as thousands of Barbadians who were not familiar with savings bonds previously were introduced to them. In November and December 2016, officers from the Central Bank sat down for a series of interviews with local journalist, Carol Roberts, in which they discussed a range of issued related to savings bonds, including how they work, who is eligible to invest and what the benefits of investing are. Two bondholders, Adrian, a 58 small business owner and former commercial bank employee, and Central Bank Governor, Dr. DeLisle Worrell, who has been investing since 1981, are also featured.
