Could we have another record Australia debt syndication?
By Sophia RodriguesPublished On 14 Jul 2020 , 10:22 AM
There is a possibility of a new record for Australia's debt issuance after the 21 November 2025 bond attracted order book of over A$49 billion. The number to beat is A$19 billion for the December 2030 bond which was a record syndication issuance achieved in May.
The price is expected to be set at a spread of 18.5bps over primary three-year Treasury Bond futures contract (indicative is 17bps to 20bps), which translates to yield of 0.495%.
The AOFM is expected to announce the issuance pricing soon. BofA Securities, J.P. Morgan Securities Australia Limited, UBS AG, Australia Branch and Westpac Institutional Bank are Joint Lead Managers.
Any bond-buying to support 3-yr target would be in addition to A$100B QE
