Denmark Plans DKK65 Billion Government Bond Issue in 2022; New Green Bond, New Linker to Come
By Emese Bartha
Denmark plans to issue 65 billion Danish kroner ($9.90 billion)
in government bonds in 2022, with new bond lines including the
country's already well-flagged debut green bond and a new
inflation-linked bond, the central bank said.
The country's total borrowing requirement amounts to DKK146
billion, with the net financing requirement amounting to minus
DKK47 billion, it said.
The expected issuance from the green bond, which will be
launched on Jan. 19, is up to DKK15 billion out of the total bond
sales target of DKK65 billion, it said.
The planned new inflation-linked bond will be opened in the
second half of 2022, replacing the existing on-the-run November
2030-dated inflation-linked bond.
The issuance of nominal bonds will continue to be concentrated
on the two- and 10-year bonds, but the government may also issue in
the existing 30-year, November 2052-dated bond, the central bank
said. It added that the five-year maturity segment will no longer
be included in the list of on-the-run issues.
