Peru's issuance of bonds equivalent to US$4 billion was successful because of the confidence that President Francisco Sagasti inspires in international markets, Universidad del Pacifico Finance Professor Guillermo Runciman
affirmed on Wednesday.
"Economic agents trust Peru's economic management capacity. The successful issuance is in line with the international financial system's expectations," he told Andina news agency.
Attractive for investors
Runciman said that another attractive aspect for investors is the profitability of these bonds.
"In this case, if they invest in buying bonds from the U.S. Treasury, they will receive an interest rate of 0.85%, but if they buy Peruvian bonds, they will get a rate of 1.85% now," he explained.
Therefore, he commented that the profitability offered to the bond's buyer is higher. "That is very positive for investors," he commented.
Runciman explained that the notes were issued in three tranches, including a 12-year bond, a second one due in 40 years, and a 101-year bond.
