Kommuninvest issues USD 1.25 billion in new benchmark bond

Kommuninvest today issued USD 1.25 billion in a new bond within the USD benchmark programme. 

The bond, which matures on 16 February 2024was issued with a bid-to-cover ratio of 2.6. It was priced 19 basis points above mid-swaps and 26.25 basis points above corresponding US Treasuries. 

This was Kommuninvest’s second USD issue in a relatively short period of time. The latest onewhich was slightly smaller and had a maturity of 2 years, took place on 23 April. The USD market, one of Kommuninvest’s three strategic borrowing markets, is now characterized by high demand and pricing that is well in line with the SEK market.  

This was yet another good issue in the USD market. The order book was both large and diversified, involving 93 investors. Given the high investor interest, pricing could be tightened by 3 basis points. The positive dynamics of the USD market now gives us important advantages in our funding operations”, says Christian Ragnartz, Head of Debt Management at Kommuninvest. 

Including this issue, Kommuninvest has so far borrowed around SEK 77 billion in 2020. The borrowing forecast for this year is SEK 150-170 billion.
