Irish bond sales to hit upper end of funding range in 2020
DUBLIN, July 24 (Reuters) - Ireland will sell bonds at the upper end of its 20 to 24 billion euro funding range this year, the debt agency said on Friday, after the government announced a fresh 5 billion euro stimulus package to help the economy weather the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
The National Treasury Management Agency (NTMA) has raised 20 billion euros in long-term debt so far this year, at an average yield of 0.27% and an average maturity of more than 11 years.
