Finland sold 3 billion euros ($3.39 billion) in new April 2043-dated government bonds on Wednesday, one of the bookrunner banks said, as the issue drew solid demand.

The new bond has a 0.50% coupon, and it was priced 5 basis points below mid-swaps, at an issue price of 99.440 and a yield of 0.528%, the same bank said. Books for the bond closed in excess of EUR16 billion, including EUR1.3 billion interest from the joint lead managers, the same bank said.

This issue has been Finland's first government bond sale this year, with two more new issues planned for 2022.

Bookrunners of the issue were BofA, Danske Bank, Goldman Sachs Bank Europe, J.P.Morgan and Nordea.
