Your Second Captivating Topic of the Week

👑 There’s a New King Bond: KfW Bank’s €4.3 Billion Issuance

STM has been tracking tokenized debt which can be found on STM Charts and up to this point we saw multiple issuances in the billions… but we now have a new leader in this asset class: KfW Bank with a €4.3B bond.

We’ll onboard the details soon but as a loyal STM follower and What’s Drippin’ reader you get first dibs! Coming with a value date of 7/2/2024 (tomorrow), this bond was issued via Clearstream which uses Deutsche Börse’s D7 platform. This is a low-coupon bond with maturity coming in 3 years.

Because this isn’t on a public blockchain it’ll be tougher to track trading activity, however the STM Data Team is doing its best to gather as many details as possible as we onboard. As noted in our RWA Securities Market Update: May 2024 report, this is a recurring theme in the institutional debt space, with another trend being that they usually issue from one institution to another or even within the same firm (different arms). This speaks towards their focus on efficiencies rather than liquidity or broader investor access. That said, we do see other bonds starting to become more accessible to retail investors… keep an eye out for more coverage on that 😉 

You may notice on STM Charts there’s an interactive map, showing bond issuances around the world. Deutsche Börse’s €3B corporate bond used to “put Germany on the tokenized debt map,” no longer the case as KfW comes in. Additionally that one was split into 3 tranches with varying maturities, amounts, and coupons compared to this single issuance!
