Issuance of 2-year euro bond
On November 9, the government issued a euro bond maturing on No-vember 18 2024. The bond was issued as a bullet bond with a coupon of 2.50 percent. In total euro 1.5 billion was issued. The issuance process and the composition of the investors can be seen in the attached press release.
By continuously issuing in the EMTN programme, the program is kept active and thus forms part of the central government’s and Danmarks Nationalbank's liquidity reserve. The issuance also contributes to ensuring that everything in the issuance process functions as it should, and that the government maintains a strong and diversified market access in foreign currency funding.
