Brazil Treasury Gets Half a Billion Dollars in the US and Europe

Goldbars Information from the Brazilian Treasury reveals that apart from the US$ 500 million in bills issued on the European and North American markets, another US$ 25 million were traded on the Asian market.

Wednesday, July 29, the Treasury started selling Brazilian Treasury Bills, the Global 2037, once again. They mature on January 20, 2037.

The bills were issued considering interest rates of 7.125% a year and with spread of 195 points over the Treasury (US Bills) maturing in May 2037 and the issue was in the hands of Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. and J.P. Morgan Securities Inc.

The bills were traded at 108.63% of their face value, resulting in investor return of 6.45% a year. The rate is the lowest since Brazil started issuing bills for the same value and means that investors are more confident in the fundaments of the economy of Brazil
