Government issues first 5-year bond in 2021


Summary short_text

According to the Treasury debt issuance calendar for the first quarter, an indicative size of GH¢1.4 billion for the five-year bond is to be issued.
"When a bond matures, the government typically refinances the maturing bond with the same tenors. Essentially, investors in the maturing bond are asked to roll over for the same tenor as the maturing bond. The implication of this refinancing strategy is that it maintains the maturity profile of the debt portfolio, holding other factors constant," the senior analyst explained.
