IDB launches $600 million 5-Year Floating Rate Note

The Inter-American Development Bank(“IADB” or “IDB”), rated Aaa/AAA (Moody’s/S&P), priced a new $600 million 5-year global floating rate note.

The transaction pays a quarterly floating rate coupon of 3 month USD LIBOR + 7 bps and matures on July 15, 2022.

This transaction is the IDB’s first floating rate benchmark transaction of 2017, and is the second largest floating rate transaction for any US-member supranational this year. The new July 2022 Floating Rate Note adds a new liquid reference point in the 5-year part of IDB’s curve complementing and extends the maturity profile.

The size of the transaction, originally announced as $500 million, was increased to $600 million on the back of an oversubscribed order book. There was strong investor demand with 25 accounts participating across a broad geographic spectrum and well-diversified investor base. The strength of the order book was underscored by the high participation from North American fund managers and Official Institutions, and selected Central Banks.
