Investors keenly contested for the N20 billion 30-year FGN Bond offered by the Debt Management Office (DMO) at the April 2019 FGN Bond Auction. For the first time the DMO introduced the 30-year FGN Bond into the market at the April 2019 FGN Bond Auction which held on Wednesday April 24, 2019. A total subscription of N80.41 billion was received from investors for the N20 billion offered by the DMO for the 30-year Bond, representing a 400% subscription rate. 

The bulk of the subscriptions came from asset managers and insurance companies who have been looking for long-term, good quality assets to buy in order to match their liabilities. 

With the success of the 30-year Bond offering, the DMO has reinforced its pioneering role in the Domestic Capital Market by introducing another longer-dated instrument which for the Government, represents appropriate funding  for infrastructure and an effective tool for spreading out its liabilities, while for the private sector, it provides an avenue for other issuers, such as corporates, to access longer-term funding for their projects. 

The DMO offered a total of N100 billion in tenors of 5, 10 and 30 years at the Auction and received total subscriptions of N149.30 billion, representing a total subscription level of about 150%. The DMO allotted a total of N97.40 billion to successful bidders at 14.50% for the 5-year, 14.55% for the 10-year and 14.80% for the 30-year FGN Bond.
