Signet Bank organised the issue of DelfinGroup bonds.
DelfinGroup bond offerings always have very healthy demand from institutional investors, and this issue was no exception, with 40% of total issue subscribed by institutional accounts. The floating interest rate makes bonds attractive even in the context of increasing central bank rates, which investors have positively assessed. We congratulate DelfinGroup on another successful capital market project and look forward to active trading in the secondary market!
