buying foreign government bonds

How difficult is it to purchase smaller tranches (25k-250k) of foreign government bonds? Many dealers won’t bother with orders under a million. I don’t want to buy a bond fund or an ETF. I want the real thing. Any thoughts?

Move there?

good suggestion, nuppal, but then I’ll lose the currency diversification. and the transaction costs seem prohibitive.

Then I have no reccomendation, lol. See if you can contact a boutiqe office in the target country and ask around there?

thanks for ideas, nuppal. I think you’re probably right on about sniffing out a boutique - I’m sure somebody will be willing to overcharge me for some gilts.

I hear Venezuelan bonds are in high demand right now.

I’ve done some analysis and determined Argentine bonds offer a better risk/reward profile than Venezuelan bonds.
