According to a written reply given by Brian Lenihan – the National Solidarity Bond – by Friday  11 June, had attracted investments of  €47 million from 1,800 customers.  That is an average of just over €26,000 per customer

The government launched the Solidarity Bond in  May 2010 – and it provides a  50% gross return over 10 years – which is  4.14% AER . After DIRT this comes to 3.96% AER.
There is currently  nationwide advertising for the bond on radio stations – trying to bring in more investment.
