ANZ raises A$2.6b in bond sale: Bloomberg
ANZ Banking Group, the Australian parent of ANZ-National in New Zealand, raised A$2.6 billion through the sale of government guaranteed bonds, Bloomberg reported. The Melbourne-based lender sold A$1.5 billion of five-year notes priced to pay 110 basis points above the mid-swap rate, and A$1.1 billion of five-year floating-rate securities at 110 basis points more than the Australian bank bill swap rate, Bloomberg reporter Patricia Kuo said, citing three people involved in the matter who declined to be named because an announcement had not yet been made.
