VietinBank to issue bonds worth $43 million

Of the 100,000 bonds (worth VND10 million or $430 each), half will mature in 2026 and half in 2029. 

Interest rates will be calculated by reference interest rate plus 1 percent per year for bonds maturing in 2026, and reference interest rate plus 1.2 percent per year for those maturing in 2029.

The referenced rate is the average interest on individuals savings, deposited in dong, postpaid for 12-month term deposits by Vietcombank, VietinBank, BIDV and Agribank.

The banks offers interest of around 6.8-7 percent on individuals savings, deposited in dong, postpaid for 12-month term deposits

According to VietinBank, the money generated from the issue will be used to increase the bank’s working capital, and to expand credit, while ensuring prudential ratios are in accordance with regulations.

The bonds are currently available to the public and sales will remain open until October 29.

In a September 30 statement, VietinBank had announced it had successfully distributed VND4 trillion ($171.67 million) worth of bonds to a total of 14,000 individual and institutional investors between August 15 and September 27.
