The German government is set to issue €5.5 billion worth of inflation-linked bonds next week. They will be the first linkers issued by Germany.The German finance agency, responsible for issuing German government bonds and managing the federal debt, will issue 10-year bonds linked to the eurozone inflation ex-tobacco index.
The agency said it would retain €500 million of the issue to maintain a liquid secondary market. Later issues may raise the final volume to between €10 billion and €15 billion and will be sold either via syndication or auction.
The agency said it wanted to create a liquid market in linkers by issuing bonds with "benchmark maturities". Linkers could become "part of the regular auction process", the agency added.
