Deutsche Hypo successfully issued its first benchmark mortgage Pfandbrief in 2016 today. The volume of the issue is 500 million euros. The cover pool contains mortgage loans to commercial real estate customers in Germany, the UK, the Netherlands, France and Poland – the target markets of Deutsche Hypo.
The mortgage Pfandbrief with a seven-year maturity carries a coupon of 0.25%. The issue price of 99.482% corresponds to a yield of 0.325%. Deutsche Hypo has been supported in the transaction by BayernLB, Crédit Agricole CIB, DZ Bank, HSBC and NORD/LB, which have proved their placement strength.
After 30 orders had been received with a volume of around 750 million euros within a short time, Deutsche Hypo closed its order book today and made the allocation of 500 million euros. The investors are from Germany and other European countries. They include asset managers as well as savings banks, Landesbanks, private banks, cooperative banks and central banks.
“In light of the difficult political situation in the world and the high volatility on the commodity, asset and capital markets, we can be very satisfied with our current issue,” emphasizes Andreas Pohl, Speaker of the Board of Managing Directors of Deutsche Hypo. “Once again, a broad investor base has expressed interest in a benchmark issue of Deutsche Hypo. This shows the good standing of our bank on the market. Considering the current transaction there is a continuous issue curve in the years 2016 to 2023, in each of which a benchmark Pfandbrief becomes due.
Deutsche Hypo looks back on nearly 145 years of experience in the capital markets, and is one of the oldest Pfandbrief banks in Germany. In addition to Pfandbriefe it also issues unsecured bearer and registered bonds.
