Buyback of Treasury bonds RIKH 18 1009

Government Debt Management has decided not to hold an auction of Treasury bonds on Friday 9 February 2018.  Instead Government Debt Management will offer to buy back bonds using an auction format. The Treasury offers to buy back nominal bonds in series RIKH 18 1009, which matures on 9 October 2018. The purpose of the buyback is to reduce the size of the series which is currently 50 b.kr., and thereby reduce the Treasury’s refinancing risk at maturity.
