Funding

The EBRD is renowned for its flexibility and the diversity of its debt products. The timing and nature of the EBRD's issuance is driven by opportunities that arise across all markets. The proceeds of transactions are typically swapped into a floating US Dollar LIBOR or EURIBOR pool, to facilitate asset and liability management. However, owing to rising demand for local currency financing, the EBRD increasingly holds proceeds in the currencies of its countries of operations.

The 2014 Borrowing Programme

The EBRD will continue to follow three paths:

  • seeking attractive opportunities for issuing products in emerging markets;
  • furthering its drive to be a partner for sophisticated investors in structured products; and
  • issuing bonds in the currencies and markets of its countries of operations as part of its mandate to stimulate and encourage the development of capital markets.

Under the 2014 Borrowing Programme EBRD is expected to borrow up to €6 billion.

Repurchasing Debt

The EBRD actively supports its own debt in the secondary market. By offering investors a bid for its bonds, the Bank seeks to enhance their liquidity and trading performance. 

In the case of private placements, the EBRD commits to being the buyer of last resort, and allows investors to restructure notes to reflect a changed investor market view. 

EBRD's commitment to buy back its bonds, which has been critical for private placement investors over the years, has resulted in the Bank repurchasing 11 per cent of its debt. In the current climate, with market illiquidity, this undertaking has never been more important.

Structured Products

The EBRD draws on its extensive and varied experience in the issuance of structured debt products to execute transactions that satisfy investors' needs. In all our issues a great deal of care is taken to ensure that investors' interests are protected.

Past structured issues have included:

  • Commodity linked issues where the return to investors is dependent on a single commodity or a basket of commodities
  • Equity linked products such as debt linked to single and multiple equity indices, customised equity baskets and exchangeable bonds
  • Yield curve based products where the payoff is linked to a variety of interest rates and yields
  • FX linked products where the payoff to the investor is based on the performance of interest rates and FX rates
  • Credit linked issues where the return to investors is dependent on a single credit or a basket of credits
  • Fund linked products which provide investors with exposure to the performance of a fund

Local Currency Bond Issuance

The EBRD issues bonds in the currencies and markets of its countries of operations as part of its mandate to stimulate and encourage the development of capital markets, as enshrined in the Agreement establishing the Bank.
