According to FCMB, the issuance witnessed broad market interest, drawing investments from various sectors, including corporate entities, other financial institutions, trustees, and high net-worth individuals.
The bond, issued at a fixed rate of 16.0% per annum, reflects current market trends and investor confidence in the Group’s financial strategy. Nigeria’s inflation rate for the month of September is 26.72 while the average 12-month rate is around 22%.
