The fourth issuance of sovereign bonds for $ 1,000 million, announced Monday by the Ministry for Finance, is the most expensive of all made by the Government.
The rate payable for a period of less than six years is 10.75% (these bonds mature in March 2022). Emissions made in 2014 and 2015 were between 7.95% and 10.5%, according to announcements of that State body.
The Ministry states that the resources of this bond placement will finance the State Budget 2016, specifically the Annual Investment Plan.
For the executive director of the Observatory of Fiscal Policy Jaime Carrera, this is the highest rate in the world, if compared with other countries with the same rating of Ecuador (B) and which have issued bonds at high rates but at larger terms.
