NTMA Funding Schedule for Quarter 4, 2017
2 October 2017 - The National Treasury Management Agency (NTMA) announces, subject to market conditions, the following auction schedule for the current calendar quarter.
- Thursday 9 November 2017 (Bond auction)
- Thursday 14 December 2017 (Treasury Bill auction)
Details will be announced on the Monday prior to each auction.
Syndication - The NTMA also announces its intention to hold a syndicated sale of a new 5 year benchmark bond in the near future, subject to market conditions. The syndication is linked to the planned early repayment of loans from the IMF, Sweden and Denmark.
At the end of September the NTMA had issued €10.5 billion in benchmark bonds, from its stated funding range of €9 to €13 billion. As the early repayment did not form part of the originally planned issuance range for 2017, total issuance for the year may be above €13 billion.
