In Oz? Nope, not since December when the last tranch expired. There has to be something close though, such as buying off the run 1yrs that expire in 3 months etc....

To be honest with you I would suggest going further out on the curve. 2 Yrs seem a better buy right now with the AUD looking to collapse. I would say if youre going to stick with the AUD go further out to lock in a yield. The RBA will start cutting by the end of the year. Yield curve is close to flat so it doesnt matter if you buy 2 yrs or 5 yrs, they yield about the same.

There are Kiwi Tbills, but they yield 2.4%.... You can buy AUD 1yr notes that yield +4%... I think thats a better bet if you HAVE to own AUD or Kiwis....

But up to you mate.... Dont buy any of these Aussie swap fund (bank issued t-bills) as they will really take it on the chin in the next 9 months. Stick with the Government bonds for now I would say.

Aussie bond futures are also a very good bet if you have access to that kind of investment? Thats because it takes out the currency risk.
