May 22, 2019. Every so often we run across a very nice, conservative, SAFE investment grade baby bond. NRUC is a new bond issued by the $25 Billion National Rural Utilities Cooperative Finance Corporation. It is paying a respectable 5.5% which is good for a highly rated issue. Here is a link to their website:


DULLES, Va. —The National Rural Utilities Cooperative Finance Corporation (“CFC”) announced today that it settled the offering of $250 million aggregate principal amount of its 5.500% Subordinated Notes due 2064 (the “Notes”).
