Chile issues 2 billion dollars in international markets
05/04/2021 Since 1 month
The Ministry of Finance issued dollar-denominated Treasury bonds for a total of USD 2 billion, as part of the Central Government’s 2021 financing plan.
This operation reaffirms Chile’s leadership in sustainable finance, reflected by thematic bond issuances. Chile is the only country in the Americas that has issued green bonds since 2019, social bonds since 2020, and sustainable bonds since 2021. Considering today’s issuance, Chile has issued a total of US$16.2 billion in thematic bonds, of which US$7.7 billion are green, US$7 billion are social and US$1.5 billion are sustainable. Thematic bonds represent 16.6% of the total stock of Central Government debt.
The issuance of the new social bond due in 2041 is in line with the measures that the Ministry of Finance has taken to diversify the investor base in recent years. Other measures include adjustments that allowed for the direct participation of international investors in peso denominated issuances, the issuance of green bonds –which targeted ESG investors-, and the recent issuance of Formosa Bonds, listed in the Taipei Stock Exchange.
