Santander Chile talks more bonds

Santander Chile talks more bonds


Santander Chile has outlined plans for potentially CLP900bn ($1.42bn) more in local bond sales, according to a securities filing. 

The local bank is considering allocating both local currency or inflation-linked securities across four-, five- and six-year paper. Fitch Ratings has rated any prospective transactions AAA on a local scale, the agency said in a statement. 

Santander Chile has not yet outlined when it will print the first series of notes, a spokesperson at the bank told LatinFinance on Monday.

In July, Santander Chile raised $100m in a 2020 private placement at a floating-rate of 80bp over Libor. The bank is planning to raise between $1bn and $1.5bn in bonds during the second half of this year.
