Sovereign Bond of the Year: Mexico

Sovereign Bond of the Year: Mexico

Last January, this year’s winner demonstrated the global appeal for its paper, while diversifying its funding sources, with 1.5 billion euro issuance. It was the country’s first Eurobond issue since October 2016 and allowed it to finalize its funding needs ahead of possible volatile market conditions tied to the country’s presidential election.

It was a perfectly timed transaction carried out only days after it had issued dollar bonds and helped the country cover all of its financing needs for 2018.

Please congratulate Mexico for winning Sovereign Bond Issuer of the year.
