I wanted to buy some government bonds of roughly 3yrs to maturity and planned to hold it to maturity. My bank's app showed 3 bonds of that maturity but one is 0.1 percentage points higher in YTM.

Is there any hidden reason that a bank would offer a bond at a seemingly cheaper price compared with other ones of similar property? If I plan to hold to maturity, is it a no-brainer to take the one with highest YTM?

    There are different government bonds because there are different governments. Are they exactly the same? A state bond vs a City bond? Are they for the same purpose? Commented Dec 6, 2023 at 11:59
  • @mhoran_psprep, all are issued by the central government, with different issue dates and coupon rates though.
