Konstantin Vyshkovsky, Director of the Public Debt and State Financial Assets Department in the Finance Ministry of the Russian Federation, will speak in front of delegates of the VI Cbonds Emerging Markets Bond Conference that will be held on April 6-7 in London.
The financial authority official will discuss plans for external sovereign borrowings for 2017 with foreign investors.
Earlier the Finance Ministry announced plans to tap the international market with $3bn worth of Eurobonds in 2017.
“In the coming three years Eurobond issuance will be predominantly carried out in USD as the global market for fixed income instruments in this currency has the highest capacity and allows minimizing the cost of borrowing. Given that, if required prerequisites are present, foreign investors will be offered bonds denominated in other currencies, for example, in EUR”, as outlined in the Key Guidelines for the Public Debt Policy of the Russian Federation for 2017-2019. The document was published by the Finance Ministry in early February.
Russia tapped international markets twice in 2016. The Finance Ministry sold a $1.75bn 10-year Eurobond at 4.75% p.a. in May and priced a $1.25bn tap at 3.9% p.a. in September. VTB Capital arranged both transactions.
