  3. Commercial Paper (CPs)
    CPs are short-term instruments with maturities of between 1 to 12 months, issued at either a discount from the face value where the notes are redeemable at their nominal value upon maturity or interest bearing notes where interest is paid on a semi-annual basis or such other periodic basis as determined by Cagamas.
