The ‘New’ Bond

The  €3.5 billion increase in Ireland’s government bonds as a result of the Promissory Note transactions announced last Thursday can be seen here.

Outstanding Bonds 30-03-12

The change is in the March 2025 bond which now has €11.7 billion in issue rather than €8.3 billion on the last occasion we looked at the Daily Outstanding Bonds Report.

The total amount of bonds in issue has increased to €83.1 billion and when/if the Bank of Ireland component of the announced transactions is put into place, the covered banks will be holding around €16 billion (one-fifth) of these.
