China conducts new central bank bills swap

Updated: Aug 09,2019 08:56 PM    Xinhua

BEIJING — The People's Bank of China (PBOC) on Aug 9 conducted the third central bank bills swap (CBS) operation to improve the liquidity of perpetual bonds issued by commercial banks.

The CBS, valued at 5 billion yuan (about $712.9 million), are open to primary dealers for bidding at a fixed rate at 0.1 percent, according to a PBOC statement.

The swap will be due on Nov 8, 2019, the statement showed.

The CBS scheme allows dealers to swap the perpetual bonds they hold for central bank bills, which will effectively boost market demand for perpetual bonds but have a neutral impact on liquidity in the banking system.

Perpetual bonds are fixed-income securities with no maturity date and are not redeemable but pay a steady stream of interests forever.
