Ministry of Finance announces the Treasury Bond auction calendar via SOMA for the first semester of 2021

As was announced in December 2020, the Ministry of Finance plans on issuing up to US$ 13 billion in local currency denominated Treasury bonds during 2021. The local currency financing plan considers the issuance of Treasury bills and bonds for up to US$ 10 billion through the SOMA platform of the Central Bank of Chile, acting as Fiscal Agent, as well as, up to US$ 3 billion through book-building, with simultaneous offering in the local and international markets.

During the first semester of 2021, the Ministry of Finance plans on issuing Treasury bills and bonds for up to US$4.4 billion via auctions in the SOMA platform.

In line with the Ministry’s plan to increase liquidity and depth in the local fixed income market, the local currency auction calendar for the first semester considers the issuance of debt in existing benchmarks bonds, through the reopening of nominal (peso) bonds due in 2028, 2030 and 2033; and of inflation-linked bonds (UF) due in 2030. Likewise, two new inflation-linked bonds will be created, due in the years 2028 and 2033. 

The dates of the SOMA auctions of the Central Bank are available in the following calendar, which is also available in the Ministry of Finance’s website, in the Public Debt Office section.

In addition, the Ministry of Finance plans to continue with liability-management operations in local currency bonds, aimed at repurchasing bonds with low outstanding amounts or near maturity (“not benchmark”), in exchange for bonds that have been designated as reference ("Benchmark"). These operations will include operations of settlement against money ("repurchase"), as well as settlement against sale of current bonds ("exchange"). This calendar will be duly informed. 

Auctions remain subject to the full processing of the “Símiles”, currently in the review process for their endorsement by the Republic’s General Comptroller's Office. Likewise, the amounts and dates could be subject to modifications in the event of changes in market conditions and / or in the financing needs of the government. If this were to occur, it will be appropriately informed.
