Annual prospects
Quarterly Government Debt Management Prospect

Third quarter 2020

  • In Q3, benchmark Treasury bonds will be offered for sale in the amount of 40-60 b.kr. market value.[1]
  • The bonds that could conceivably be offered are all benchmark Treasury issues, plus RIKS 33 0321,[2] and market conditions will determine how much, if any, will be sold in each series.
  • Issuance of a new nominal bond maturing in 2023, originally to be issued next year, will be expedited, and market making is planned.

[1]The sale price or market value refers to the clean price plus accrued indexation; i.e., with indexation but without accrued interest.

[2] Note that this series is not part of the benchmark system and will not be subject to market making.
