As part of its 2014 external borrowing program, Turkey’s Treasury has mandated Citigroup, HSBC and Morgan Stanley for the issuance of a Dollar denominated bond due 2024.
The Treasury did not provide other details but bankers told Reuters on Wednesday that initial price guidance for Turkish Treasury's 10-year dollar-denominated Eurobond is at around 6%. This issue will be a test for foreign investors’ appetite for Turkish assets and investors’ confidence in the Turkish economy.
The Treasury plans to borrow USD 6bn from international markets this year through Eurobond, Samurai and sukuk bond issues.
