Decline in foreign ownership of mortgage bonds

For a number of years, foreign investors have bought large amounts of Danish mortgage bonds and today they own more than a quarter of the entire Danish mortgage bond market. However, since last term month, foreign investors have sold both fixed and variable rate mortgage bonds (incl. adjustable rate mortgage bonds, ARM) for a total of kr. 19 billion. A significant part of the amount is due to the maturities of ARM bonds.
