BoG supports govt to refinance ¢2.83bn 5-year bond


The Bank of Ghana (BoG) supported the government to refinance ¢2.83 billion 5-year bonds expected to have matured yesterday November 28, 2022.

Joy Business is learning that since August 2022, the government has been repaying maturities on notes and bonds with support from the BoG. This is because there’s no market appetite for rollovers.

The unfavorable pricing conditions are also a major concern as the yields have been hovering around 30%.

The government’s difficult fiscal position has compelled the Central Bank to provide financial support to the budget.

In most cases, it is structured as an overdraft.

Meanwhile, 26% of the 5-year bond were foreign holders, whereas the rest of the holders were both institutional and retail investors.

Government records oversubscription of T-bills sale for the second week running

Despite the financial challenges facing the government, the government for the second week running recorded an oversubscription of Treasury bills sales, according to data from the Bank of Ghana.

It secured a total of ¢2.39 billion, 9.9% more than the targeted amount of ¢2.176 billion.
