Finland Sells EUR3 Billion in April 2043 Government Bond
By Emese Bartha
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.
