This page is an archive, only available in English and French.

As part of the new cash management policy, Mr Thierry Breton, the French minister of the economy, finance and industry has given his approval to the creation of a new very short term, flexible BTF.

This new Treasury bill will have maturities ranging from 2 weeks to 6 weeks, with a settlement in D+1. Issued through auctions, it will complement the range of existing BTF, and will be issued to manage infrequent cash situations. It will thus help AFT limit the extent of precautionary cash balance.
